L3 Linkabit delivers its Network-Centric Waveform (NCW) to Canada

01 Apr 2015

L3 Linkabit completed tests with the Canadian Research Centre (CRC) and Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) using the Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS-3) satellite and L3 RMPM-1000 Modem to create a fully meshed network solution.  The network included SOTM, various ground terminals and a RCN terminal.  The MPM-1000 modem was previously selected by the US Army to host the NCW in mid-2000.  The NCW is a multi-frequency time division multiple access (MF-TDMA) waveform based on an open interoperability specification.  It was designed to accommodate heterogeneous communications from the smallest-aperture mobile terminal to the largest-aperture strategic terminal, all operating within the same network.
