(U) Modified Miniature Receive Terminal (MMRT)

-Road Map
-Text Version

Overview (U):

(U) The Modified Miniature Receive Terminal (MMRT) provides for a survivable communications system because the ICBM Super Low Frequency Communications System (SLFCS) is becoming obsolete and insupportable. It will integrate new and existing communications technology. Utilizing the existing SLFCS antenna, MMRT integrates existing B1-B Bomber Miniature Receive Terminals (MRT)s and incorporates their high data rate message receive capability. The MMRT will insure connectivity through trans- and post-SIOP. It also will standardize the ICBM interoperability with other JCS platforms. This will enable missiles to capitalize on development work for other programs, especially that in the E-4/E-6 Navy programs.

Description (U):

(U) Modified Miniature Receive Terminal (MMRT) Program. Program to satisfy both the Air Force and Navy requirements via a joint interest effort with the Air Force Electronics Systems Center, Hanscom AFB, MA as the lead agency. Modifies existing Miniature Receive Terminals (MRTs). EMD contract awarded in FY96 for three platforms: the E-4B (National Airborne Operations Center (NOAC)); E-6B (Take Charge and Move Out (TACAMO)); and an option for the ICBM Launch Control Centers (LCCs). Limited EMD option for MMRT in ICBM LCCs to be exercised in 2QtrFY97. Production contract award planned for FY00. Complete deployment of Air Force and Navy MMRT units by 2004.

User Impact (U):

(U) The Modified Miniature Receive Terminal (MMRT) Program will modify existing Miniature Receive Terminals (MRTs) and provide High Data Rate (HIDAR) capability for installation in three platforms: the E-4B, National Airborne Operations Center (NOAC); the E-6B, Take Charge and Move Out (TACAMO); and ICBM Launch Control Centers (LCCs). MRT is a Very Low Frequency/Low Frequency (VLF/LF) receiver already designed, developed, and installed in the B-1 and B-52 bombers. This program will make VLF/LF receivers fully interoperable in all three platforms.
