GD to Update MUOS Waveform for US Army AN/PRC-155 MUOS-Manpack Radios

  • The PRC-155 radio was the first tactical radio to connect and sustain communication with the MUOS satellite communications network.

General Dynamics received a contract from the U.S. Army to support upgrades to the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) waveform used in the Army's AN/PRC-155 two-channel MUOS-Manpack radios. The waveform is the digital 'dial-tone' needed to connect with the U.S. Navy's new MUOS satellite communications network that will provide U.S. military and government personnel smartphone-like voice clarity and data connectivity. The total potential value of the contract is approximately $13 million and includes waveform integration into the PRC-155 radios, radio/waveform testing, field support and soldier training.

"From developing the MUOS waveform and the PRC-155 MUOS-Manpack radio, to building the four MUOS ground stations located around the world, General Dynamics Mission Systems provides what soldiers need to connect with the game-changing MUOS tactical communications system," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics Mission Systems.

MUOS waveform upgrades will enhance voice clarity and cyber security of voice and data communications across the MUOS communications network. Other waveform enhancements include improved connectivity with other MUOS-Manpack radios, the MUOS ground system and satellites. The MUOS communications network is expected to achieve global communications coverage in 2016.
