Raytheon was awarded a $12.7 million contract to provide Allegheny Power a Project 25 (P25) mobile radio system to help improve radio frequency coverage and communications reliability.

The network will improve standardization and interoperability, which will allow line workers to share information and communicate more easily across the company's 30,000-square-mile service area. "We have about 800 field workers serving 1.5 million customers across parts of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Maryland. Raytheon's solution provides us with a system that allows for efficient communications during both normal operations and emergency situations," said David W. McDonald, vice president, distribution for Allegheny Power.

Raytheon will provide a 50-site digital trunked radio system, interconnected via an IP network infrastructure, to form an interoperable wide-area P25 radio communications network. The system will bring Allegheny Power into compliance with the FCC narrowbanding mandate.

Under the terms of the contract, Raytheon will be responsible for system design, frequency acquisition and licensing, equipment, project management, installation, testing, training, warranty and maintenance services.
