Protected Antijam Tactical SATCOM
Our researchers are designing new satellite communications technologies that will enable the U.S. military to maintain connectivity in the field, even when adversaries are trying to jam signals and disrupt communications. We build prototypes of communications equipment and test them in the lab and in realistic, mobile scenarios. These scenarios could include installing communications equipment on an Army Humvee and driving through an urban area to understand how building blockages affect performance or testing our equipment on an Air Force plane to determine that it can withstand the vibrations and turbulence of flight. Our goal is to ensure that the technology will work as planned in its operational environment.
