Low Cost Terminal (LCT)
Enabling highly effective, assured, secure command, control and support for tactical military missions
The U.S. military is no longer simply enabled by the network – it is dependent on the network. The military must be capable of operating under volatile conditions and must stay ahead of adversaries’ growing technological sophistication.
Communications on the move (COTM) users have a critical need for some form of protection from electronic attacks because these users typically are smaller, highly mobile, widely dispersed groups. With the launching of the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellites, the military can take advantage of a dramatic increase in capability, but there is a need for “low cost” terminals for widespread use by the tactical warfighter.
The LCT solution
The LCT solution enables assured, secure mission command at levels below the brigade combat team, anywhere in the world. Significantly more affordable than existing terminals, the LCT solution includes three variants of equipment: a Protected Airborne (P-Airborne) AEHF terminal, a Protected Communications-on-the-Move (P-COTM) terminal and a P-Ultra terminal for protected communications at-the-halt.
All terminals are compatible with both the AEHF satellites and Milstar satellites.
