UHF - Ultra-High Frequency

FLTSATCOM, AFSATCOM, LEASAT and UHF Follow­On support tactical mobile forces. Strategic users will be shifted to Milstar. UHF has the advantage of low cost user terminals that can operate well with small, portable antennas. The capacity is relatively low, however it is adequate to support single channel voice circuits. UHF has a relatively low capability to resist jamming of the satellites.
