A team from Harris (NYSE: HRS) recently used a Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) lab that simulates the US Navy´s mobile user objective system to connect the AN/PRC-117G Falcon III radio to MUOS systems developed by Lockheed Martin.
It´s one of several terminals that are well under way in testing their connections with the constellation.
Many terminals–from hand-held radios to satellite links on ships, planes and ground vehicles–can easily integrate this new type of signal, and Lockheed Martin´s facility helps developers test those connections. While some terminals are new products, the lab also helps existing terminals connect. Enabling access for radios in inventory means more users can use MUOS without the cost of all new gear.
