General Dynamics Tests 2,000-Mile Transmission Via MUOS Satellites; Chris Marzilli Comments

CellTowerGeneral Dynamics C4 Systems has completed a 2,000-mile transmission test between Phoenix and Taunton, Massachusettsby using two-channel AN/PRC-155 manpack radios to communicate the U.S. Navy‘s Mobile User Objective System satellite communications system.

Chris Marzilli, the C4 systems unit’s president, said Wednesday that the test also sought to demonstrate how the handheld PRC-154A Rifleman radios could connect through the system for platoon-level communications.

During the demonstration, General Dynamics C4 Systems used PRC-155 to bridge the Soldier Radio Waveform communications toward the MUOS frequency and the MUOS communications toward the Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System.

The Navy uses MUOS satellites to provide narrowband tactical ground-to-satellite-to-ground communications between military forces deployed around the world, the company said.
