SPAWAR awards two narrowband contracts

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in San Diego has awarded two $40 million contracts to Lockheed Martin Corp. and Raytheon Co. to advance its next-generation narrowband satellite communications system.

During the 14-month contract, contractors will conduct architecture and risk reduction work on the Mobile User Objective System, a satellite system supporting joint and coalition mobile and fixed-site terminal users with one space segment and multiple ground segments.

MUOS will be a component of the Defense Department's Advanced Narrowband Communications system and will replace the Navy's Ultra High Frequency Follow-On system over the next two decades.

Work will be completed by Nov. 30, 2003.

Paul Scearce, Lockheed Martin MUOS program manager, said the system will expand the capacity for ultra-high-frequency communications.
