Effective, Alternative Detection Capabilities

The Viasat MBR-4020 is designed to fit seamlessly into Viasat's Hybrid Adaptive Network SATCOM architecture concept, which will conceptually allow users to seamlessly operate across commercial and government purpose-built SATCOM networks, such as WGS, creating an end-to-end network that provides mitigation against congestion situations, intentional and unintentional interference sources and cyber threats through implementation of layered resiliency in highly contested environments. (Image: Viasat) Viasat Inc., a global communications company, today announced its Mobile Broadband Router (MBR)-4020 airborne modem has successfully completed the US Army Forces Strategic Command (ARSTRAT) certification process. By completing the certification, the Viasat MBR-4020 modem is now authorised to operate on the Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) network, which will significantly reduce overall satellite communications (SATCOM) costs for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) customers and very important person special airlift mission (VIPSAM) aircraft.

Broadly speaking, civilian communications are performed in a three megahertz/MHz to five gigahertz/GHz waveband. This encompasses high frequency radio (three megahertz/MHz to 30MHz) and Very/Ultra High Frequency (V/UHF) communications across a 30MHz to three gigahertz waveband. Further up the spectrum, several commercial Satellite Communications (SATCOM) providers like Thuraya, Iridium, INMARSAT/ISatPhone and LightSquared/Ligado use wavebands of 1.525GHz to 1.646GHz. Meanwhile, cellular protocols such as LTE (Long Term Evolution) employ frequencies from circa 460MHz to 5.8GHz, while GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) uses frequencies of 900MHz to 1.9GHz. Whenever someone uses a communications device they announce their presence. This is because their equipment transmits RF (Radio Frequency) energy. In the counter-insurgency context, COMINT serves two purposes

MF Gateway leverages work conducted by Systematic in conjunction with the Australian Army’s Land Network Integration Centre (LNIC). That project saw a VMF Capability Technology Demonstrator (CTD) established and which could move information between SitaWare Headquarters and a number of the Australian Army’s systems.systematic developed a new Variable Message Format (VMF) Gateway for its SitaWare Headquarters command-and-control (C2) software

RS-MITCOS to bid for the Bundeswehr’s Digitisation of Land-based Operations (D-LBO) programme, which supersedes two previous projects, the Mobile taktische Kommunikation (MoTaKo) and Mobiler taktischer Informationsverbund (MoTIV). D-LBO is the Bundeswehr’s premier modernisation project, which will result in the future digital command system of the German Army. Rheinmetall and Rohde & Schwarz – two of Germany’s most prominent and most globally-minded companies active in the defence and security domains – announced their joint venture RRS-MITCOS Rheinmetall - Rohde & Schwarz - Military IT and Communications Solutions GmbH Digitisation will encompass every aspect of Bundeswehr combat and support activity, from armoured and logistics vehicles to integration of communications for small infantry units.
