Harris Logs onto Milstar Satellite
Friday, February 02, 2007
Harris Corporation has completed another major milestone in a $1b U.S. Navy communications program competition: logging onto a Milstar satellite using an Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) Navy Multiband Terminal prototype system onboard a platform that simulates submarine conditions.
Harris has successfully demonstrated low data rate(LDR), medium data rate (MDR) and extended data rate (XDR) logon for the various ship and shore terminals -- including submarine mast and periscope versions -- under simulated platform motion consistent with high-sea states. The successful demonstrations are the culmination of three years of waveform design and hardware/software development as part of the AEHF Navy Multiband Terminal program.
