Cubic Corporation will proceed with Full Rate Production (FRP) of GATR satellite antenna systems for the US Army's Transportable Tactical Command Communications (T2C2) program.
T2C2 was granted approval for FRP as a result of the T2C2 Full Rate Production Milestone review. The FRP decision will enable the Army's program office to procure and field Cubic's GATR satellite antenna systems to Army units, the company said in a statement Wednesday.
The GATR 1.2-meter and 2.4-meter inflatable satellite terminals provide high-bandwidth network communications and mission command for initial entry and sustained forward operations. Its compact size and design provides improvements in transportability, bandwidth and set up speed, providing communications when and where they are needed most. The GATR satellite antenna system's inflatable feature allows it to provide a larger dish size in similar transit volume and weight compared to a traditional rigid dish, with increased capability and bandwidth efficiency.
The US Army plans to begin fielding T2C2 immediately, with a brigade from the 82nd Airborne Division to be the first unit equipped.
