completed on-orbit testing of the first Navy Mobile User Objective System
satellite, the company said in a July 17 statement. The completion of testing
allows the Navy to move on to the operational test and evaluation phase in

Florida. The satellite has a wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA)
payload that is meant to provide a large increase in bandwidth over the legacy
Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) satellite system.
