Abstract
Under U.S. defense policy, the Navy is responsible for delivering satellite communications to"disadvantaged"users, the term for intelligence officials and troops working in remote areas, often with no more resources than backpacks or small vehicles. MUOS is slated to provide coverage for these users for the next many years. In situations where MUOS is not available due to any reason, it is essential to have an alternate BLOS communications capability. This RFP has requested that an airborne WCDMA base station be developed as one potential solution to this problem. KalScott Engineering proposes to develop and flight test a miniaturized, airborne qualified WCDMA base station for this application.
