Advanced EHF Assured, Protected, Survivable
Advanced EHF
Assured, Protected, Survivable
Advanced Extremely High Frequency
Advanced EHF is the nation’s newest protected military satellite (MILSATCOM) system, providing a secure communications backbone for US
warfighters and leaders. AEHF delivers significant
enhancements over legacy systems for a broad set
of mission areas, including: land, air, naval, special
operations, strategic, missile defense, space and intelligence operations. The system offers assured,
protected and survivable MILSATCOM to the US
Government and international partners (Canada,
the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom).
AEHF satellites are integrated with a robust,
survivable, and resilient mission control segment, a
mission planning element, and user terminals that
work across the AEHF and Milstar constellations.
With the first satellites operating in-orbit, AEHF
will soon provide near-global, 24-hour coverage for
a wide array of warfighter applications including
data networking, broadcasting, voice conferencing,
and strategic reportback.
By exploiting features not available on other
SATCOM systems, only AEHF will provide connectivity to warfighters in all threat conditions in a
contested wartime environment.

Ensuring Future Capability
AEHF provides significant margin (>3000lb mass and 4kW power) for enhancements to support future
warfighter missions as part of a low-risk technology insertion program. Options include: additional
capacity - up to 3x -5x; Comm-on-the-Move user support; Improved anti-jam and crypto enhancements
and others that enhance system flexibility and resilience.
AEHF Features
Capability
10x improvement over Milstar with robust protection against jamming and detection threats with
frequency hopping, low power signals, frequency selection, covert waveform, on-board signal
processing and anti-jam nulling antennas.
Resilience
Secure control network; Nuclear hardening; Satellite autonomy; Distributed, survivable mission
control architecture; On-board switching for rapid network flexibility; Satellite crosslinks to avoid
vulnerable ground relays.
