(U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification

Acquire a three-phased Global Broadcast Service (GBS) program which will provide a worldwide, satellite-based, high data rate communications broadcast capability in accordance with the Mission Need Statement approved by the Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC) in Aug 95. Acquire an advanced [wideband] satellite system to host GBS phase 3 and continue appropriate services now provided by the DSCS system in accordance with Joint Space Management Board direction based on the Aug 96 MILSATCOM Architecture.

GBS will provide efficient high data rate connectivity between many distributed information sources and warfighters who receive the broadcast directly on small, inexpensive user terminals. Examples of data to be broadcast include digitized imagery, logistics data, weather data, maps, operational orders (e.g., Air Tasking Order), and video. Phase One, starting in 1996, will use commercial satellite leases to provide a CONUS-based testbed for requirements definition and operational concept refinement. Phase Two, with first launch in 1998, will provide an interim, near worldwide GBS capability at military frequencies hosted on the last three UHF Follow-On (UFO) satellites (numbers 8, 9, and 10). Phase Three, with first launch in 2005, will provide a fully capable, global capability at military frequencies hosted on a conceptual satellite the DoD Space Architect calls the Advanced Wideband System. The Air Force was designated executive agent for the GBS Program by USD(A&T) on 27 Mar 96.

The Advanced Wideband Satellite System is in the planning stage to merge the future GBS Phase 3 and Defense Communications System (DSCS) follow-on packages on a common satellite bus IAW OSD direction following review of the DoD MILSATCOM Architecture developed by the DoD Space Architect. It will be procured making maximum use of commercial technology and practices with initial launch in the 2006 time frame. DSCS-like services will use the same X-band frequency as DSCS, and the GBS phase 3 broadcast will use the same Ka-band frequency as GBS phase 2.

Funding is in Budget Activity 4, Demonstration and Validation, since it supports the demonstration and validation of a Global Broadcast Service technology.

(U) Change Summary Explanation:

Funding/Schedule: Funding shifts from FY98 to FY99 delay provision of integrated communications security (COMSEC) equipment one year (to FY01) and slip Broadcast Management subsystem upgrades. This affects availability of some attributes of GBS service, not the availability of the basic GBS service itself.

Technical: Not Applicable.
