20 Oct 09. Elbit Systems Ltd. recently introduced the first tactical, full military standardized satellite communication on-the-Move (SOTM) solution, allowing low visibility profile and high data rate broadband capabilities, and can be installed on any vehicle platform in a cost-effective package. As part of the SOTM solution, Elbit Systems developed a low profile SOTM antenna that provides broadband communication anywhere, anytime, supported by a unique modem technology for the SOTM communication. The modern battlefield requires real-time, high data rate communication, shared by a variety of users, while ensuring reliable high-quality service in harsh weather conditions. Elbit Systems’ new satellite communication solution, the ELSAT2000, answers all these requirements with the use of a BM-FDMA SatCom modem (Burst Mode Frequency Division Multiple Access) a technology that allows extremely low visibility and optimal utilization on Ku band. The Company’s new military rugged system ELSAT2000 also allows two-way broadband communication, with zero configuration and without user intervention (performing satellite acquisition, re-acquisition and tracking within its operational envelope). The system includes an internal GPS receiver, gyros and is easy to install and operate.
15 Oct 09. Lockheed Martin successfully launched a target missile for today’s ATM-48 intercept test of the U.S. Army’s Patriot Advanced Capability-2 (PAC-2) air defense system. Under the Missile Defense Agency’s Targets and Countermeasures Program in cooperation with the U.S. Air Force, a Lockheed Martin-led team launched the short-range, legacy target from Fort Wingate, N.M. L-3 Coleman Aerospace provided the Hera target vehicle. This marked the 33rd successful target mission Lockheed Martin has achieved out of 34 missions since 1996. Lockheed Martin’s unmatched 97-percent reliability rate has included unitary and separating targets, spanning land, sea and air launches. Lockheed Martin performs Targets and Countermeasures program management, design and systems engineering in Huntsville, Ala., Denver, Colo., and Sunnyvale, Calif., and integration in Courtland, Ala.
19 Oct 09. Lockheed Martin has demonstrated the interface compatibility of the first Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite’s dual legacy and next-generation Ultra High Frequency (UHF) communications payloads with ground user test terminals. This major milestone ensures that mobile users of the existing UHF Follow-On (UFO) system will have a smooth transition to MUOS, which will provide significantly improved and assured communications for U.S. mobile warfighters. With the adaptation of state-of-the art 3rd-Generation (3G) mobile technology, the Lockheed Martin d
