Challenges to Developing Avionics Terminals with Commercial Waveform, Multi-Modem Capability

Resource Type

Last week, the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) awarded Raytheon and L3Harris $500 million each to develop protected tactical waveform capable modems for the next generation Protected Tactical Satcom (PTS), but the applicable wave forms are largely DoD, not commercial, ones, and developing avionics terminals with commercial wave forms will be a challenge going forward for improving satellite communications for military aircraft.
