General Dynamics Receives Contract from U.S. Army to Update MUOS Waveform

General Dynamics received a contract from the U.S. Army to support upgrades to the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) waveform used in the Army's AN/PRC-155 two-channel MUOS-Manpack radios. The waveform is the digital 'dial-tone' needed to connect with the U.S. Navy's new MUOS satellite communications network that will provide U.S. military and government personnel smartphone-like voice clarity and data connectivity. The total potential value of the contract is approximately $13 million and includes waveform integration into the PRC-155 radios, radio/waveform testing, field support and soldier training. MUOS waveform upgrades will enhance voice clarity and cyber security of voice and data communications across the MUOS communications network. Other waveform enhancements include improved connectivity with other MUOS-Manpack radios, the MUOS ground system and satellites. The MUOS communications network is expected to achieve global communications coverage in 2016.
