SatelliteThe U.S. Air Force is interested in procuring a ground-based technology that can mitigate jamming threats to military broadband communication satellites.

A sources sought notice released Tuesday outlines the branch’s plan to acquire an X-band anti-jam system for the Wideband Global SATCOM constellation.
