50 megabit-per-second troposcatter modem for military communications introduced by Comtech
ORLANDO, Fla., 28 Oct. 2014. Comtech Systems Inc. in Orlando, Fla., is introducing the CS67500A 50 megabit-per-second digital troposcatter modem for point-to-point, over-the-horizon military communications.
The modem incorporates troposcatter-specific forward error correction (FEC) with embedded turbo product coding, automatic code rate (ARC) and adaptive link power control (ALPC) to maintain performance even under adverse conditions.
The CS67500A provides high-speed, low-latency transmission for over-the-horizon communications, without the need for satellites or several line-of-sight relays.
The first CS67500A modems have been integrated into the U.S. Army TSC-198V3 system and fielded to an Army expeditionary signal battalion for test and evaluation as a replacement for the legacy AN/TRC-170 troposcatter systems.
The Army also is using TSC-198V3 terminals for the Integrated Air and Missile Defense program for use with Patriot missile battalions during global deployments.
Comtech troposcatter systems help reduce demand on limited satellite bandwidth, and their low latency characteristics are for the critical, time-sensitive information used in missile defense.
