Secure, Mobile, Anti-Jam, Reliable, Tactical Terminal

The Secure, Mobile, Anti-Jam, Reliable, Tactical Terminal (SMART-T) is a protected satellite terminal that provides resilient global beyond-line-of-sight (satellite) data exchange for the current and future unified network. The system enables commanders at brigade and higher to operate in an electronic warfare threat environment that includes both radio frequency signal interference (jamming), signal detection and geographic location threats. SMART-T makes it possible for units to reliably and securely extend the range of their network in such a manner that communications cannot be jammed, detected or intercepted, enabling Soldiers to send critical text, data, voice and video communications beyond their area of operations.

Additionally, the SMART-T can also survive the effects of a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse produced by nuclear detonations and can operate and survive in a biological and chemical environment.   

SMART-T uses the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellite constellation, providing the Army with the highest level of protected communications. Additionally, SMART-T provides fully interoperable communications with the AEHF and Milstar terminals of other services (US Air Force, US Navy, US Marine Corps, and other DoD agencies and activities).   


  • Interoperable with AEHF satellite constellation
  • Enhanced system interfaces
  • Provides Low and Medium Data Rate or Extreme Data Rate capability for voice and data transmission via Serial and/or Ethernet interfaces (future).
  • Provides anti-jam and anti-scintillation (nuclear environment) communications
