The U.S. Navy has selected Avaya Government Solutions‘ rugged versions of communication application systems for installation on three ships.
Two San Antonio-class vessels and the USS Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier will have Avaya’s Meeting Exchange, Aura Communication Manager programs and administration terminals, Avaya said Wednesday.
Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) serves as the systems integrator for the LPD project.
Avaya encases its unified communication application servers in a core systems chassis with the goal of creating standard specifications for the infrastructure and helping the servers withstand harsh conditions at sea.
The systems are designed to meet military environmental ruggedization standards on vibration, shock, temperature and humidity, airborne noise and electromagnetic emissions.
