Cubic Mission and Performance Solutions (CMPS) has successfully entered Full-Rate Production for its Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Next Generation Troposcatter (NGT) system contract with the US Marine Corps.
According to CMPS, the leading-edge system will provide Marines with low latency communications by bouncing radio waves off the troposphere. The company claims that its NGT system will provide the first X-band capability in a troposcatter program of record.
“Cubic’s NGT system is the highest-performing troposcatter system in the world and its advanced communications solutions provide the USMC beyond-line-of-sight communications to ensure readiness during critical missions,” said CMPS Chief Growth Officer, Anthony Verna.
The NGT system packs-out in the back of a single Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) providing Marines with resilient connectivity, increased bandwidth, and the ability to go anywhere at a moment’s notice.
In 2019, the USMC awarded Cubic a 10-year IDIQ contract. In the statement of work, Cubic and Comtech Systems, Inc. have teamed to include manufacturing and delivery of the NGT systems, test support, logistics and training, fielding support and sustainment.
