Satellite Communications: SMART-T

Description

The Secure, Mobile, Anti-Jam, Reliable, Tactical Terminal (SMART-T) is the Army’s protected satellite communications system that enables commanders at brigade and higher to operate in an electronic warfare (EW) threat environment that includes both radio frequency signal interference (jamming), signal detection and geographic location threats.

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 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.

Capabilities

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