Exelishas successfully completed several software upgrades for the new Global Positioning System Next Generation Operational Control System, or GPS OCX. Integration and testing were recently conducted on iteration 1.5 of the OCX navigation, encryption and Mission Upload Generator, or MUG, software.
Lockheed Martin recently completed a milestone test on the U.S. Navy’s evolutionary Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 2 system. This test further validated the system’s ability to protect the Navy’s fleet from evolving anti-ship missile threats.
Cree Inc. reports it has surpassed a significant milestone in shipping over two million GaN High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMT) for cellular telecommunications and is providing game-changing benefits over traditional silicon-based technologies, including higher power, higher efficiency and wider bandwidth. As mobile devices such as smartphones are becoming more widespread, telecommunications companies are looking for innovative technologies to improve channel capacity and speed of wireless systems, while simultaneously lowering power consumption of transmission amplifiers.
The Lockheed Martin team developing the U.S. Air Force’s next generation Global Positioning System III satellites has turned on power to the system module of the program’s first spacecraft, designated GPS III Space Vehicle One (SV-1). The milestone is a key indication the team is on track to deliver the first satellite for launch availability in 2014.
Anritsu Corp. announces it is the first test equipment manufacturer to exceed 10,000 validated protocol conformance test cases across all Work Items and frequency bands for LTE and LTE Inter-RAT. The milestone, achieved at the recent GCF CAG#33 meeting in Farnborough, UK, was accomplished on the ME7834 Mobile Device Test Platform.
The Lockheed Martin team developing the U.S. Air Force’s next generation Global Positioning System III satellites has completed thermal vacuum testing for the Navigation Payload Element (NPE) of the GPS III Non-Flight Satellite Testbed (GNST).
