Connectivity with Certainty

Our Fortress® C-Band LTE User Equipment (UE) features a state of the art, patented baseband processor supporting 3GPP LTE Release 9. The unit is a 3GPP Category 3 UE which delivers Time Division Duplex (TDD) downlink/uplink data rates up to 59.5Mbps downlink and 20.4Mbps uplink in a 20MHz channel. The UE is designed specifically for LTE to operate in C-Band (4.4 – 5.0GHz).

  • LTE re-banded to operate in C-band
  • High performance radio
  • Over the air software upgradeable
  • 5 Watts transmit power

About General Dynamics Fortress LTE

Ideal for small to large specialized private wireless deployments, Fortress LTE delivers an end-to-end solution providing ‘always on’ high speed network access to vital information including voice, video, data, text and chat using any 3GPP compliant LTE enabled device. Fortress LTE solutions are frequency agile, customizable for specific applications and designed for harsh, permanent or temporary deployments where network access may not be available. Fortress LTE is a cost-effective, single vendor end-to-end solution consisting of:

  • 4G Core Network
  • Radio Access Network (Base Station)
  • User Equipment (UE)

Features

  • The Fortress C-Band LTE User Equipment (UE) is packaged in an IP67 rated metal enclosure, with N-Type connectors for connection to external antennas, and is powered from a 28VDC supply
  • User authentication and security is accomplished by standard 3GPP USIM authentication
  • Configuration and UE management is performed via an easy to use web based tool
  • Software upgrades to future LTE releases are done seamlessly over-the-air by network push without any intervention from the subscriber

Lifting the "Fog of War" With Tactical LTE

Today's soldiers operate on challenging terrain and in fast-moving, remote, and dynamic battlefields. Our LTE technology will enable soldiers to take pictures and gather information using their smartphones, then transmit the data back to their commanders, who can track their locations on command and control displays. To learn more about how our LTE solutions can help lift "The Fog of War," request our whitepaper.
