"We have tested the WNaN network extensively, and WNaN performance exceeds the demands of today's Army," said Dr. Jason Redi, senior director of engineering and WNaN principal investigator for Raytheon BBN Technologies. In coordination with DARPA, the U.S. Army purchased 125 Version 4 (next generation) WNaN radios in support of the NIE 13.1 experiment. The version 4 radio dramatically reduces size, weight and power requirements compared with the earlier version used at NIE 12.1, and it increases battery life to more than 10 hours.
