The RAP/VLA and other emerging sonobuoy based sensing systems require a robust over-the-horizon (OTH) communications mechanism that offers low probability of detection (LPD) and low probability of intercept (LPI) as well as secure transmission. Signal Systems Corporation (SSC) will demonstrate a system in water with a RF Gateway Buoy. The RF Gateway Buoy will also house COTS SATCOM, VHF, and acoustic communications modules with encryption. 500 mile OTH transmission tests will be conducted using a custom designed land based Master Station.
