Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has received the go-ahead from the U.S. Army to resume development work on a technology intended to help the branch plan and execute missions in an electromagnetic operational environment.
The company was awarded a five-year contract for the Army’s Electronic Warfare Planning and Management Tool project, Raytheon said Tuesday.
According to Raytheon, the EWPMT software would merge battlefield terrain and intelligence data, as well as protect electronic signals used by U.S. and allied forces.
The Army’s decision to recommence EWPMT development came after the U.S. Court of Federal Claims dismissed a protest that challengedÂ the award of the contract to Raytheon.
Work will occur at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland and in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
