Lockheed Martin Shows MONAX Battlefield Broadband System

Lockheed Martin introduced its MONAX communications system for the battlefield. The MONAX communications system connects a commercial off-the-shelf smartphone to a ground or airborne 3G base station with a MONAX Lynx portable sleeve.

Lockheed Martin said its system is frequency flexible, connects hundreds of users to a single base station, and delivers superior range and link performance in voice, video and data transmission. The network uses a secure RF link, protected through exportable encryption for joint and coalition operations.
