Lockheed Gets Contract for 5th MUOS Satellite

by Sara M. Langston with the blog faculty Source: Space News WASHINGTON – The U.S. Navy awarded Lockheed Martin Space Systems of Sunnyvale, Calif., a $339.6 million contract to build a fifth ultrahigh frequency mobile communications satellite, the company announced Feb. 7. The MUOS constellation will provide narrowband coverage to U.S. military users around the world and Australian defense forces as the result of a 2010 agreement between the nations to share ultrahigh frequency capacity. The system will replace the Navy's aging Ultra High Frequency Follow-On (UFO) constellation. The new spacecraft will feature Boeing-built payloads similar to those UFO satellites, plus new payloads designed by Lockheed Martin that will dramatically increase throughput. Much of the program's delay has been attributed to integration problems with the legacy payload, Navy officials have said.
