L-3 Linkabit's RMPM-1000 NCW Modem Successfully Completes Multi-Band, Multi-Beam WGS Testing
L-3 Linkabit, developer of the highly advanced Network Centric Waveform (NCW) currently in use by the U.S. Army’s WIN-T program and the U.S. Marine Corps’ Network On-The-Move (NOTM) system, announced today that it successfully tested its RMPM-1000 modem in a multi-band, multi-beam Over-The-Air (OTA) configuration using the WGS-3 satellite. This was not only the first OTA multi-band, multi-beam Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) test using NCW, but is thought to be the first test of its kind in a fully networked WGS environment.
Working in support of an ongoing risk reduction trial, the RMPM-1000 established network connectivity between a large-aperture X-Band terminal operating as a hub and two mobile small-aperture Ka-Band SATCOM On-The-Move (SOTM) terminals. In addition, as part of its network connectivity testing, the two SOTM terminals were able to connect using an assist from the X-Band hub, thereby successfully demonstrating integrated star/mesh hybrid network operations in a heterogeneous terminal environment.

“We are pleased that our NCW solution and the RMPM-1000 modem performed exactly as designed,” said Elissa Seidenglanz, senior vice president of operations at L-3 Linkabit. “The MPM-1000 modem was developed and optimized for use over WGS, as well as any transponded satellite system requiring megabit IP services not previously available.”
