Cubic Awarded US Government Communications Equipment Contract
[Via Satellite 08-23-2016] Cubic Corporation, through its subsidiaries TeraLogics, Dtech Labs and Gatr Technologies, has received initial purchase orders to provide the U.S. military’s Unified Combatant Commands (UCC) with Tactical Two-way Sensor Data Transport (T2SDT) baseband kits. Cubic’s integrated T2SDT solution will upgrade existing Digital Video Broadcasting-Return Channel via Satellite (DVB-RCS) terminal capabilities.
T2SDT terminals are high-data rate, ruggedized Full Motion Video (FMV) terminals that support the backhaul, storage, reception, transrating/transcoding and overall management of real-time FMV. According to Cubic, T2SDT terminals have a small footprint, support multiple high-definition videos; employ the latest video encoding standards; and can manage and quickly understand ingested real-time video.
Cubic’s T2SDT solution will use TeraLogics’ Unified Video cloud management application, Dtech’s network and server components and Gatr’s 2.4-meter inflatable satellite communication terminal. TeraLogics is leading the delivery effort, providing UCC with the final integrated baseband kits.
Cubic’s solution fulfills UCC’s requirement to backhaul sensor data from Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) assets deployed around the globe in support of high value target positive identification and other direct action missions. In addition to the sensor data backhaul requirement, Cubic’s solution also provides command and control services over the same tactical kit to support user communities across the UCC.
