Protected Military Satellite Communication

Definition/Scope: Military satellite communications (or milsatcom) systems are typically categorized as wideband, protected, or narrowband. Protected systems stress antijam features, covertness, and nuclear survivability. Protected systems have the ability to avoid, prevent, negate, or mitigate the degradation, disruption, denial, unauthorized access, or exploitation of communications services by adversaries or the environment. Future protected systems include the Advanced Extremely High Frequency System and Advanced Polar System.
