Note: FY96 funding is only for Milstar EHF terminals. From FY97 on, funding includes Milstar EHF terminals, SHF terminals and UHF SATCOM. Prior and FY96 funding for UHF SATCOM is in PE 0303606F (UHF SATCOM). Prior funding for SHF terminals is in PE 0303605F. Prior year funding for all programs is included in total program cost.

(U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification

Military Satellite Communications (MILSATCOM) provides worldwide communications to strategic and tactical warfighters. The MILSATCOM Terminals Program contains efforts to develop equipment for Air Force users to communicate over military satellites, including Milstar, Ultra High Frequency (UHF) satellites, and Defense Satellite Communication System (DSCS). Enhancements to the Milstar ground and airborne Command Post Terminals (CPT), which were procured in FY93 through two contractors, are continuing. The Air ForceÕs Milstar tactical terminals, the Single Channel Anti-Jam Manportable (SCAMP) and the Secure, Mobile, Anti-Jam, Reliable, Tactical Terminal (SMART-T), are funded by the Air Force and procured by the Army. Increasing requirements for UHF satellite capacity, coupled with limited channel capacity, led the Joint Staff to mandate new standards for UHF users that are designed to improve satellite access and efficiency by utilizing Demand Assigned Multiple Access (DAMA) techniques. Development efforts in the UHF SATCOM program are primarily focused on the design and implementation of the Network Control System (NCS) and ground and airborne DAMA terminals. DSCS terminal procurement efforts sustain and modernize the Ground Mobile Forces terminal and the Jam-Resistant Secure Communications (JRSC) subnet of DSCS. This effort is in Budget Activity 7, Operational System Development, because it has completed a Milestone III review and is in production.
