ViaLite’s RF Links Meet US Military WGS Standard

ViaLite Communications has announced that its RF over fibre links are compliant with the US army MIL-STD-188-164B ARSTRAT-WGS standard.

ViaLite’s Director of Sales for North America, Craig Somach, confirmed the successful testing of the ViaLiteHD RF over fibre transmission equipment with tests carried out in-conjunction with a US systems integrator. ViaLite’s high performance L-Band HTS RF over fibre links were shown to deliver better than -60 dBC at 10 dBm input power.

Following qualification, ViaLite’s links can be used to connect ground stations for the Wideband Global Satcom (WGS) system; a high capacity satellite communications system principally designed and developed for the US Department of Defense.

MIL-STD-188-164 is a series of technical standards and design objectives relating to interoperability and performance common to both long haul and tactical communications systems.

As well as being able to operate over long distances due to their low attenuation, RF over optical fibre systems can prevent attempts to eavesdrop or corrupt critical operational data. The fibre is also immune to electromagnetic pulse (EMP) strikes and allows antennas to be located greater distances away from assets.
