A benefit of this approach would be that front-line tactical users, such as forward deployed forces or remotely piloted aircraft, could execute missions more securely and reliably than is now done in environments where communications can be jammed.
Using a modem that is significantly smaller and less expensive, the demonstration involved showing key elements of the protected tactical waveform similar to Advanced Extremely High Frequency, one of the military's most complex.
Key cost benefits and modem features were identified and demonstrated allowing for flexibility across frequency bands that will provide tactical users the communications protection they need at affordable prices using existing and future satellites. The new tactical waveform can operate on a variety of bands including Q, X and Ka. It provides secure, anti-jam, low probability of intercept capabilities not available today on unprocessed or unprotected satellites.
"As the only provider of AEHF production satellite terminals to the military,
The waveform demonstration marks the first of three phases under a
