Northrop Grumman is the world-leader in protected satcom, having built the payloads for the Milstar I and AEHF satellites. These satellites provide protect, jam resistant, low probability intercept/detect communications to both strategic and tactical military users through the use of advanced waveforms and sophisticated algorithms.
The result is a highly sophisticated which can restrict the proliferation of tactical terminals. Northrop Grumman has been working on a new design for a low-cost tactical terminal, and recently demonstrated the functionality by communicating with an on-orbit AEHF satellite.
