SBG Technology Solutions Supports Successful Launch of Fourth Navy MUOS Satellite
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – September 8, 2015 – SBG Technology Solutions, one of the fastest growing engineering service providers in the United States, congratulates the U.S. Navy on the successful launch of the fourth MUOS (Mobile User Objective System) Satellite on September 2, 2015 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. MUOS-4 is the latest addition to a network of satellites and relay ground stations that is revolutionizing secure communications for military forces on the move. Users with operational MUOS terminals will be able to seamlessly connect beyond line-of-sight around the globe. MUOS’ new net-centric capabilities include simultaneous voice and data, over a 3rd Generation Mobile Internet Protocol system. SBG is proud to be part of the MUOS Team.
When the advanced capability is fully operational, MUOS will include five satellites (four operational and an on-orbit spare), four ground stations, interfaces to NIPRNet and SIPRNet via DOD gateways, and tens of thousands of user terminals on joint marine, airborne, and ground platforms. The successful launch of the fourth MUOS satellite completes the operational constellation and ushers in a new age of secure UHF communications between users in locations across the globe.
