ProtoStar is being rapidly developed and can support simultaneous waveforms. Its architecture can accept software and waveform updates and change radio characteristics while in orbit. Future capabilities can be expanded to support assured precision navigation and timing, battle management command and control functions, and multi-level security between waveforms.

Features and benefits

  • Supports UHF through Ka-band frequencies
  • Flexible processing architecture that scales to meet requirements
  • Network router capability
  • NSA type-1 encryption compatible
  • Fully re-programmable on orbit to adapt to changing mission needs
