NEW YORK CITY, 15 Nov. 2006. L-3 Communications has begun the first customer shipments of its next-generation Rover III data links, adding the ability to decode multiple subcarriers from L and C Band analog and C Band digital signals.
This new capability supports add-in software to decode the proprietary metadata transmitted on many unmanned aerial sensor (UAS) platforms. The new Rover III is the major component of the U.S. Army's One System Remote Video Terminal (OSRVT).
"Rover III has let our armed forces transform fighting doctrine to save lives," says Curtis Brunson, president and general manager of L-3's Communication Systems-West division (CS-West).
L-3 CS-West, located in Salt Lake City, Utah, is a supplier of wideband data links and mobile surface and airborne satellite terminals for military applications.
