Cubic Enters Full-Rate Production on USMC Next Generation Troposcatter

  • Contract Cubic's NGT system will provide the first X-band capability in a troposcatter program of record

Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions (CMPS) has successfully entered Full-Rate Production for its Indefinite- Delivery/Indefinite- Quantity (IDIQ) Next Generation Troposcatter (NGT) system contract with the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC). The leading-edge system will provide Marines with low latency communications by bouncing radio waves off the troposphere.

“Cubic’s NGT system is the highest-performing troposcatter system in the world and its advanced communications solutions provide the USMC beyond-line-of-sight communications to ensure readiness during critical missions,” said CMPS Chief Growth Officer, Anthony Verna.

The NGT system packs-out in the back of a single Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) providing Marines with resilient connectivity, increased bandwidth, and the ability to go anywhere on the globe at a moment’s notice.
