MARLBOROUGH, Mass., -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and PlantCML, an EADS North America company, will conduct joint demonstrations of APCO Project 25 (P25) Inter-RF Sub-System Interface at the International Wireless Communication Expo in Las Vegas, March 10-12, 2010.

IWCE attendees will be able to witness production versions of Raytheon P25net and PlantCML's COR (P25) radio systems communicating during the first public appearance of Raytheon's Mobile Civil Communications Solutions vehicle.

"The open standards approach promotes competition, drives down costs and gives our customers low-risk procurement flexibility," said Bill Iannacci, director of civil communications, Raytheon Network Centric Systems. "It also creates the building blocks for nationwide standards-based interoperability, meeting the needs of the public safety community for daily operations and post catastrophe response."

"The P25 public safety radio communications standards were established to ensure communications interoperability for first responders at the scene of an emergency or disaster situation," said Steve Shanck, vice president and general manager of PlantCML Land Mobile Radio. "These interoperability demonstrations at IWCE showcase our joint commitment to facilitating the introduction of P25-standard equipment at the local, state and national levels."
