The fifth Lockheed Martin Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite for the U.S. Navy is entering its first system test faster than the previous build, now that integration is complete. Engineers and technicians recently mated its system module and core to the multi-beam assembly (MBA), which hosts 16 ultra-high frequency (UHF) antennas for distributed, global communications coverage.
Coilcraft has announced its new RF and Power Inductor Product Finder App for Apple and Android smart phones. This free application enables users to quickly select the best inductor for their design and order free evaluation samples, all from their mobile phone.
Anritsu Co. announces that it has validated 100 percent of the tests required by NTT DoCoMo for the Summer 2014 model mobile phones using the flexible ME7834L Mobile Device Test Platform. Achievement of this level of validation uniquely positions the ME7834L as the only test system with the ability to offer complete coverage for DoCoMo requirements, building on Anritsu’s #1 positions for Summer 2013 and Winter 2013 test requirements.
Wi-Fi is a hot topic among car OEMs and a small number of luxury brands have already launched LTE-based Wi-Fi hotspot solutions during the past twelve months. Most major OEMs plan to follow suit with some, such as GM, claiming that it will start offering LTE-based Wi-Fi hotspot solutions in its vehicles in 2014.

The 5th annual LTE Innovation Summit has issued a call for papers seeking presenters from all stages of the mobile wireless ecosystem. The 2014 LTE Innovation Summit will focus on the underlying technologies that are driving the convergence of wireless networks, devices, services & applications.
Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, announced that it has launched full support for the Global Certification Forum (GCF) LTE data throughput performance testing requirements. This will enable mobile operators and device manufacturers to cost-efficiently test the data throughput performance of new devices in real-world conditions.
Azimuth has announced the evolution of its over-the-air test platform, developed to measure and analyze performance of mobile devices in their native states, under real-world conditions. Intelligent Over-The-Air (iOTA) revolutionizes lab testing by enabling device performance to be tested through the complete radio frequency (RF) chain under highly configurable scenarios, including playback of data from drive routes to emulate actual and familiar network conditions.
Cassidian has supplied a customer with the world’s first prototype of a mobile TETRA LTE radio system, which will allow voice and broadband data services to be used in parallel. As part of the German Armed Forces’ highly mobile cellular networks study, HochZeN (Hochmobile Zellulare Netzwerke), the system passed its first functional test when it was accepted by the Armed Forces’ Technical Centre for Information Technology and Electronics (WTD 81) in November.
