The Joint Tactical Terminal - Receiver (JTT-R) provides four channels of secure reception of satellite communications (SATCOM) for critical, near real-time multi-source threat, survivor, and Blue Force Tracker data. It enables world-wide situational awareness capability by connecting tactical users and intelligence nodes.
The Leonardo DRS family of terminals provide red side processing for filtering, correlation, and translation, therefore freeing up platform processors for other mission functions. They are all multi-channel, software defined terminal that delivers IBS via the Common Interactive Broadcast (CIB) waveform today and is reprogrammable for future waveforms. With an upgrade kit the terminals can provide simultaneous CIB receive and UHF SATCOM secure voice, text, and data using either the Integrated Waveform (IW) or the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) waveform.
