U.S. Navy Awards Contract Modification to General Dynamics Mission Systems to Improve High-Frequency Communications for Navy's Four-Channel, AN/USC-61(C) Digital Modular Radios

U.S. Navy awarded a contract modification to General Dynamics Mission Systems to improve high-frequency (HF) communications for the Navy's four-channel, AN/USC-61(C) Digital Modular Radios (DMR). The 3G High-frequency 3rd Generation Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) increases transmission rates from radio to radio by 24% and reduces static and other noises that hinder clear, crisp voice communications quality. It also improves communications among U.S. and coalition forces and can supplement satellite communications (SATCOM) when SATCOM networks are overloaded or unavailable. The General Dynamics' software-defined DMR radios are the Navy's mission critical communications hub for Navy vessels and submarines. They provide a wide spectrum of military voice and data communication channels including Ultra-High Frequency satellite networks, Very High Frequency and Line of Sight radios, single-channel Ground and Airborne Radio Systems (SINCGARS) and other tactical radios. The radios are also equipped with General Dynamics Advanced Infosec Machine (AIM) encryption chip, certified by NSA to carry classified information at the Type 1 Top Secret level and below. The radios also communicate simultaneously at multiple levels of security, on each of the radios four channels.
