USMC SATCOM system upgrade outperforms expectations
The USMC Systems Command is in the process of upgrading its tactical satellite system with the latest field user evaluations showing that it has performed beyond expectations.
The Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) is a next-gen, narrowband satellite communication capability includes the AN/PRC-117G radio system and up to three antenna kits which allows users to simultaneously access networks.
Lt Col Jeff Decker, Ground Radios product manager at USMC Systems Command, said: ‘MUOS gives us a 3G capability using satellite constellations… It is similar to a cell phone capability in the sky that covers the entire globe.’
MUOS was used by Marine Expeditionary Force at Twentynine Palms, California between March and May 2020 during fire support simulation exercises where it was used to coordinate air strikes and mortar fire.
