Frequency Electronics Delivers Timing Subsystem to Northrop Grumman for
Advanced EHF Fourth Payload
MITCHEL FIELD, N.Y., Dec. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Frequency Electronics,
Inc. (Nasdaq:FEIM) has delivered to Northrop Grumman Corporation the Master
Oscillator Group (MOG) for the communications payload on the U.S. Air Force's
fourth Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellite.
The delivery is the fourth in a series of MOGs for the six-satellite AEHF
program, which provides anti-jam communication links to U.S. armed forces and
key allies. It is the latest of a series of communication satellites
integrated by Lockheed Space Systems and operated by the United States Air
Force Space Command.
The MOG consists of state-of-the-art Rubidium Master Oscillators and a Master
Oscillator Synthesizer/Distribution Unit. As part of the payload's Time and
Reference Frequency subsystem, the MOG provides timing data & fixed reference
frequencies for the payload and spacecraft, ensuring that internal and earth
clocks are perfectly synchronized.
Frequency Electronics is under contract for additional sets of MOGs for AEHF
satellites # 5 and # 6 to start delivery in 2015. Northrop Grumman provides
protected military satellite communication payloads for AEHF to system prime
contractor Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Sunnyvale, Calif. Advanced EHF, the
next generation of protected military satellite communications satellites,
provides vastly improved global, survivable, highly secure, protected
communications for strategic command and tactical warfighters operating on
ground, sea and air platforms. The system also serves international partners
Canada, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
Frequency Electronics' support of the AEHF program, like the Milstar System it
builds on, reflects Frequency's long-standing commitment to space technology
and its unparalleled record of reliability and performance.
