The fifth Mobile User Objective System (MUOS-5) satellite is now delivering secure communications to troops using its Ultra High Frequency (UHF) telecommunications system. This comes as the U.S. Navy, partnered with the Army Forces Strategic Command, have worked to bring MUOS-5 into operation after it successfully completed on-orbit testing on January 19, 2017.
The fifth, and final, MUOS satellite has reached its intended orbit and has started pre-operational testing. With the spacecraft's solar array and antennas now deployed, it marks a turning point for the satellite which encountered a problem with its propulsion system.
