MUOS Antarctic testing

Vic Moberg is a MUOS teammate who supports the program office, and he sends a link to an article about MUOS Antarctic testing.

Members of the team were able to catch a ride with the 62nd Airlift Wing which was responsible for Operation Deep Freeze, the annual resupply mission of the National Science Foundation (NSF), McMurdo and Amundsen-Scott Stations in Antarctica.

Within 20 minutes of arriving in Antarctica the team was able to send out the first ever voice and data communications from the Continent.

I am not surprised that they had good comms there. From what I hear, MUOS comms are *exceptionally* good in the Polar regions, but that’s about all I can say on the matter.
