CACI International Inc announced that it successfully completed Optical Communication Terminal (OCT) Interoperability Testing (OIT) of its CrossBeam® OCT for the Space Development Agency’s (SDA) Tranche 1 data relay and tracking network. As part of this testing, CACI was the first SDA-compliant terminal to successfully establish a consistent data communication link with the reference modem.
“Our proven, mature, and low-risk technology, combined with our advancements in scalable, U.S.-based manufacturing capacity, will rapidly transform sensing and communications for national security missions,” said Todd Probert, President of National Security and Innovative Solutions at CACI. “Our innovations in optical communications help the SDA build the foundation of future warfighting infrastructure and resilient networks across all domains.”
The testing was done with SDA as part of a team led by Lockheed Martin to build 42 satellites for SDA's Tranche 1 Transport Layer (T1TL), a mesh network of 126 optically interconnected space vehicles that will provide a resilient, low-latency, high-volume data transport communication system slated for launch in late 2024. The T1TL will provide global communications access and deliver persistent regional encrypted connectivity in support of warfighter missions around the globe, serving as the backbone for the Department of Defense’s Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) effort.
This successful testing demonstrates performance to the version 3.0 standard and allows the CrossBeam OCT to move forward with OIT with optical payloads, thereby verifying interoperability in support of SDA’s Proliferated Warfighter Space Architecture constellation of tracking and transport satellites.
Keysight Technologies, Inc. and MediaTek have successfully completed 5G New Radio (NR) and 5G reduced capability (RedCap) interoperability development testing (IODT) based on the 3GPP Release 17 (Rel-17) standard. The testing verified the latest MediaTek 5G modem technologies using Keysight’s 5G Network Emulation Solutions.
Raytheon, an RTX business, in support of the U.S. Army, completed a live-fire engagement using the advanced, 360-degree Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor, known as LTAMDS.
Keysight Technologies, Inc. introduces a first in its class advancement in network testing with the new Keysight Elastic Network Generator (KENG) software – an agile, composable network test platform based on open vendor-neutral API and designed for continuous integration (CI).
Keysight Technologies, Inc. introduces the new Keysight i3070 Series 7i in-line test system, an automated in-circuit test system (ICT), offering increased capacity and throughput, that enables manufacturers to economically meet the complex test demands of larger node count printed circuit board assembly (PCBAs).
