A General Dynamics business unit has opened a facility in Scottsdale, Ariz. to assess radio terminals that are intended to support the U.S. Navy‘s Mobile User Objective System communications network.
General Dynamics C4 Systems equipped the MUOS Radio Testing Lab with hardware and software tools to simulate radio interoperability with the satellite constellation’s ground station, the subsidiary said Tuesday.
“This brings this critical operational capability even closer to being available to military and government personnel,” said Chris Marzilli, General Dynamics C4 Systems president.
MUOS radios are demonstrated with a General Dynamics-built waveform application to secure voice communications and transmit data across a simulated MUOS infrastructure, according to the release.
General Dynamics built the MUOS satellite waveform to use a wideband code division, multiple access cellular platform.
