On 22 July, it was announced that a team including the two AEHF
contractors (see above), alongside Telecommunication Systems of Maryland, had completed the Critical Design Review (CDR) for the Low Cost Terminal (LCT) which will allow communications with the AEHF
A constellation of nuclear-hardened communications satellites forms the AEHF
protected network to stave off high-tech jammers, eavesdropping and cyberattacks.
8 million contract for the development of management concepts for a new protected tactical waveform communications system, which is being funded through the Air Force's AEHF
Again using the example of AEHF
, both strategic and tactical protected communications payloads are hosted on the satellite.
Air Force has been allowing select groups to use AEHF
for testing as it fields the system.
TSAT provides significantly more capacity and connections than the Milstar and AEHF
systems, improving availability of protected satellite communications for future military operations.
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.
traditional radiobased, crosslink to complete the AEHF
group of satellites or constellation.
EMS D&S's nulling system will help in safeguarding the AEHF
constellation's Milsatcom architecture, as it is designed to protect the spacecraft's tactical network from jamming and piracy.
Also featured were Northrop Grumman's AEHF
and Enhanced Polar System (EPS) payload programs and the EHF LCT.
Vanguard delivered the bus structures for AEHF
space vehicles five and six.
