General Dynamics has introduced an “over-the-air” satellite connectivity testing service for companies that aim to link their radio or antenna products to the U.S. Navy‘s Mobile User Objective System.

The service is offered at General Dynamics’ MUOS radio testing laboratory in Scottsdale and allows radio vendors to evaluate data and voice transmission with the tactical satellite communications network and a simulated ground infrastructure, General Dynamics said Thursday.

“In addition to offering the test lab, we’re proud to also have developed the MUOS waveform and built the MUOS ground station system that both connects personnel with the MUOS network and manages MUOS satellite operations,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics’ mission systems unit and a Wash100 winner.

Vendors must seek approval from the Navy to access the MUOS radio assessment facility.

MUOS connectivity testing will involve the integration of a General Dynamics-made waveform technology into a vendor’s radio product and making calls to the satellite network.
