AEHF achieves IOC

Advanced Extremely High Frequency system achieves IOC, Initial Operational Capability, on 28 July. It’s the follow-on system to Milstar, of which I was the Navy’s Operational Test Director, so I always have an interest in the EHF systems.

Currently, 3 of 6 satellites are up. After the 6th launch and after testing, the constellation will reach Full Operational Capability (FOC). That 6th satellite is scheduled to launch in 2019, so there’s still a ways to go before that.
