L3 Linkabit expands MPM2000 family

19 October 2017

L3 Linkabit has developed a version of its Multi Purpose Modem 2000 (MPM-2000) for use on airborne platforms, showing the system for the first time at AUSA 2017 in Washington, DC.

The Network-Centric Waveform (NCW) Internet Protocol (IP) MPM-2000 is a development of the widely-used MPM1000, which is an important element of the US Army’s Warfighter Information Net-Tactical (WIN-T) Increment 2 (Inc 2) SATCOM on the move (SOTM) capability.

The expansion was a private development to support the drive to improve the mobility of the WIN-T structure and provides the same capabilities as the MPM1000 in a lighter and more compact form factor with improved size, weight, and power (SWAP) characteristics.
