CHIPS Articles: Naval Construction Group 1 Conducts MUOS Capability Demo

Naval Construction Group 1 Conducts MUOS Capability Demo
By U.S. Fleet Cyber Command / U.S. 10th Fleet Public Affairs - October 1, 2018
Personnel from Naval Construction Group 1 successfully demonstrated the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) capability for Rear Adm. James Butler, deputy commander, U.S. Fleet Cyber Command, and Rear Adm. Michael Brookes, deputy commander U.S. 10th Fleet on Friday, Sept. 28, at Ft. Meade.

MUOS provides secure worldwide ultra-high frequency satellite communications while the WCDMA capability upgrade adapts commercial 3G cellular technology to connect users to each other and to the DoD Information Network for voice and data communications.

With the MUOS constellation on-orbit, the ground and network management system operational, and the WCDMA waveform available for end-user radios, operators today with MUOS WCDMA radios are connecting beyond line-of-sight around the globe, transmitting simultaneous voice, video and mission data on an internet protocol-based system that connects to military networks, said the Navy Communications Satellite Program Office, which oversees the MUOS program.

Since its establishment, FCC/C10F has grown into an operational force composed of more than 16,000 Active and Reserve Sailors and civilians organized into 26 active commands, 40 Cyber Mission Force units, and 26 reserve commands around the globe. FCC serves as the Navy component command to U.S. Strategic Command and U.S. Cyber Command, and the Navy's Service Cryptologic Component commander under the National Security Agency/Central Security Service. C10F, the operational arm of FCC, executes its mission through a task force structure similar to other warfare commanders. In this role, C10F provides support of Navy and joint missions in cyber/networks, cryptologic/signals intelligence and space.
