US Navy Accepts General Dynamics Ground Stations for MUOS
[Via Satellite 01-24-2014] The U.S. Navy has accepted three General Dynamics C4 Systems-built ground stations for the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS). While General Dynamics led the development and delivers of the stations, Lockheed Martin is the prime contractor for the MUOS system. Located in Hawaii, Virginia and Australia, the MUOS ground systems receive radio calls relayed through satellites from service members around the world, and also assist with the overall management of the MUOS satellites.
“The success in delivering these ground stations, combined with the successful MUOS waveform running on the AN/PRC-155 Manpack two-channel radio, are testaments to General Dynamics’ expertise in delivering networks that securely and reliably connect military and government personnel with their commanders and others from virtually any location on the planet,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems.
