Always On, Always Connected
For the soldier making a call from the mountains, the first responder receiving data in the aftermath of a disaster, the boater in distress sending his location to the Coast Guard, and the astronaut orbiting the earth receiving a message from mission control, the ability to communicate is crucial. Across vast distances, through dangerous terrain, and in any domain, we provide secure voice and data communications when the mission depends on it.
Every day around the globe, our radios ensure planes land safely, isolated personnel are found, soldiers communicate securely and first responders have the communications they need to go where no one else can.
Our spaceborne communications products enable spacecraft to transmit scientific data from the surface of a distant planet, receive GPS signals to precisely locate itself in space, and maintain the critical link that allows astronauts to talk to mission control.
Disruptive Radio Technologies
In today’s modern battlefield, the U.S. military needs to maintain networked communications in and under contested and congested electromagnetic spectrum environments. They need non-traditional waveforms and technologies that provide anti-jam, low probability of intercept, and low probability of detection. To respond to these needs, our experts build new radios and waveforms and quickly get them into the hands of soldiers.
Two General Dynamics Small Deep Space Transponders and a power amplifier will help NASA’s Perseverance Rover explore Mars. The transponders are the rover’s communications link to NASA, transmitting data and images over 100 million miles back to Earth.
Over the course of more than 20 years of operating, maintaining and sustaining satellite communication systems, I have witnessed unnecessary challenges as sustainment was an afterthought and not factored in early on. Coupling sustainment with the enterprise operations and maintenance design is impe…
The URC-300 is a versatile platform that supports multiple waveforms and provides exceptional radio frequency (RF) performance to support ground-to-air, line-of-sight and other mission critical applications.
