The Marine Corps Forces Pacific Experimentation Center has acquired the MONAX system, a portable private 4G network that provides voice, data and video services through commercial smartphone technologies.
The network connects off-the-shelf smartphones to a cellular base station infrastructure enabling users to securely send and receive data rich information to its users. The network uses a secure radio frequency link to protect communications through strong encryption.
“We are proud to help the Marine Corps support this critical mission,” said Sam Guthrie, MONAX program director for Lockheed. “MONAX is a unique offering that provides an affordable, portable network for a wide range of military, civil and humanitarian missions.”
