Air Force Wants Anti-Jam Tech for Global Wideband Satcom

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.

A potential contractor would update the WGS ground control infrastructure to include a satellite telemetry platform for locating and responding to any deliberate interference.

The branch wants the anti-jamming system to operate through a software patch.

The Air Force says the contract for this program will contain a four-year base period of performance that will commence in fiscal year 2015.
