On June 28, the fourth Lockheed Martin-built Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite arrived at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, to begin prep for its expected August launch. MUOS-4 is the latest addition to a network of orbiting satellites and relay ground stations that is revolutionizing secure communications for mobile military forces. Users with operational MUOS terminals can seamlessly connect beyond line-of-sight around the globe. MUOS' new smart phone-like capabilities include simultaneous crystal-clear voice, and video and mission data, on a high-speed Internet Protocol-based system. http://lmt.co/1GUr2uP
