US Navy Launches MUOS Satellite

first_img View post tag: US Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today US Navy Launches MUOS Satellite View post tag: MoUs US Navy Launches MUOS Satellite September 3, 2015center_img After a two-day delay due to tropical storm conditions, the U.S. Navy’s fourth Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite launched on September 2nd at 6:18 a.m. EDT from Space Launch Complex 41.MUOS-4, whose signal was acquired approximately three hours after launch, completes the initial operational constellation and provides near global network coverage for warfighters and combatant commanders. This array allows mobile forces, including submarines, surface ships and aircraft, to communicate around the world via the narrowband spectrum.User communities that will primarily benefit include ground forces at the individual soldier level but also include members of all services and special forces.“The legacy satellite communication system allowed users to ‘talk’ as long as they were within the same satellite footprint,” explained Navy Capt. Joe Kan, program manager for the Communications Satellite Program Office. “MUOS allows troops all over the world to talk, text and share mission data seamlessly without having to worry about where they are in relation to a satellite.”The program office falls under the Navy’s Program Executive Office for Space Systems, which has responsibility for the MUOS program and is located at the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in San Diego.The Internet Protocol-based nature of MUOS allows network access to classified and unclassified networks. This network access for deployed tactical users will allow the exchange of critical situation awareness and targeting information.“With the launch of MUOS-4 we’re going to deliver that worldwide coverage and communication service for users,” explained Nina Tran, the program office’s space division director. “The legacy payload we have on MUOS satellites allows a smooth transition to a newer, better MUOS capability. We are benefitting from providing the legacy channels for current users and we are exploring all the capability that MUOS has to offer.”MUOS is an architecture comprised of a five-satellite constellation – a fifth on-orbit spare to be launched in 2016 – four ground stations across the globe, complex software to manage the network and an integrated waveform for use with user radios.According to the program office’s technical director, Jim Parsons, it’s the system’s flexible design that allows rapid insertion of technology to keep the system up-to-speed.“The nice thing about MUOS is that the ground system and terminals contain all the switching and routing technology,” Parsons said. “The satellite remains unchanged over time and can allow technology insertion into the ground stations and the waveform over time to increase capability without having to make any satellite changes.”Cmdr. Pete Sheehy, principal assistant program manager, explained that 24/7, beyond-line-of-sight communications will greatly benefit ground forces needing aviation support.MUOS is already providing legacy communications to combatant commanders via active satellites on-orbit. MUOS’ advanced capability – Wideband Code Division Multiple Access – has been demonstrated in various environments, platforms and applications such as integration testing with the newest submarine antennas, Navy special operations scenario exercises and Air Force C-17 in-flight tests.“In our testing we’ve tried to be as realistic as possible,” said Jarratt Mowery, director of end-to-end system testing. “In several events we’ve brought uniformed warfighters in and given them training on the MUOS system and operating its components. They were able to define the types of operations they would like to use the system and allowed them to exercise those operations in a realistic environment. Be that in vehicles driving around, in a forest with a thick canopy or even in airborne platforms.”An added benefit beyond the system’s initial requirements is extending communications further north and south toward the polar regions. This polar coverage, up to approximately 85 degrees in the Arctic under peak conditions, is significant considering that wireless and satellite communications has always been a struggle at extreme north and south latitudes.Over the next several days MUOS-4 will transition to reach its geosynchronous orbit location approximately 22,000 miles above Earth to begin initial on-orbit testing. The satellite’s solar arrays and antennas will then be deployed. On-orbit testing will start for subsequent turn-over to the Navy for test and commissioning to service.Two MUOS satellites, launched in 2012 and 2013, are already providing legacy communications capability from their geosynchronous orbits over the Pacific Ocean and the United States.MUOS-3, launched in January, was accepted by the Navy in June after on-orbit testing. The third satellite is awaiting final testing before being accepted for operational use.Ultimately, the constellation and associated network will extend narrowband communications availability well past 2025.The Navy’s Program Executive Office for Space Systems, located at the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in San Diego, is responsible for the MUOS program.Image: US Navy Equipment & technology Share this articlelast_img read more

USCGC Campbell wraps up patrol with $80M of cocaine seizures

first_img The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Campbell concluded its patrol of the Caribbean Sea and Eastern Pacific Ocean having seized a total of $80 million dollars worth of cocaine.The cutter returned to its homeport at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Maine, on February 14, following a 61-day counter narcotics patrol.In the span of one month Campbell seized or disrupted a total of seven smuggling vessels carrying cocaine from South America bound for the United States. The amount of cocaine seized was estimated to be 4,800 pounds (2,177 kilograms) and worth more than $80 million dollars.In addition, Campbell’s crew rescued eight Cuban migrants attempting to sail from Cuba to the United States in an unseaworthy vessel.Campbell deployed in support of the Joint-Interagency Task Force-South, which is in an international operation to disrupt the transportation of narcotics. In doing so, Campbell worked with air, land, and naval assets from the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security, as well as Western Hemisphere partner agencies, to counter drug trafficking.Campbell’s Commanding Officer, Cmdr. Michael Nasitka, siad: “The amount of success we experienced is a true testament to the professionalism of the crew and their dedication to the mission.”“The patrol was extremely busy and the crew spent the holidays away from their families. Despite this, the crew rose to every challenge in order to achieve success at thwarting transnational crime in the Western Hemisphere.”Campbell is a 270-foot medium endurance cutter, and is the sixth cutter to bear the name Campbell. The new Offshore Patrol Cutter contract has been awarded to replace the service’s 270-foot and 210-foot medium endurance cutters, which are becoming increasingly expensive to maintain and operate.[mappress mapid=”17720″] February 18, 2016 Authorities USCGC Campbell returns from patrol with $80 million of cocaine seizures Back to overview,Home naval-today USCGC Campbell returns from patrol with $80 million of cocaine seizures center_img View post tag: US Coast Guard View post tag: USCGC Campbell Share this articlelast_img read more
