The Tinker's Toolbox - Raytheon's New Naval Multiband Satellite System
Hosted by Alix Paultre, the Tinker's Toolbox is the Advantage Design Group's web-based interview show where we talk about the latest technology, components, and design issues for the electronic design engineering community.
In this podcast we talk to Richard Smith (left) and Richard Kane (right) of Raytheon about the new Navy Multiband Terminal (NMT). It’s the company's next-generation satellite communication (SATCOM) system for the U.S. Navy and coalition partners that provides seamless assured connectivity between a ship’s or submarine’s computer network and the Global Information Grid.
NMT is expected to be installed in approximately 300 U.S. Navy ships, submarines and shore stations, replacing several existing SATCOM systems developed and maintained by Raytheon since the mid-1980s. The new system will provide naval commanders and sailors with greater data throughput capacity and improved protection against enemy intercepts.
