General Dynamics Mission Sys-tems streamed video more than 62 miles over ocean between tactical antennas during the Marine Corp-backed Ship-to-Shore Ma- neuver, Exploration, and Experi-mentation military exercise, part of a program intended to implement a tactical 4G network. Known as the "Long Shot," it would provide broadband capabilities over the ocean, even with satellite failure and other obstacles. The "Long Shot" doubles the range of existing line-of-sight systems, and provides increased bandwidth for video footage and other data. It will use similar technology as civilian networks and is expected to be adopted by the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps. Additional demonstrations are expected this year.
