Mobile Communications

Our Contribution

Special Operations Forces (SOF) continue to rely on APL expertise to understand the communications technology landscape, inform requirements development, and identify options for mobile communications capabilities across a variety of operational scenarios. Our experts conducted technical exchanges, hosted two large workshops and seminars, and created and disseminated a comprehensive electronic survey to characterize detailed requirements and available capabilities. From these activities, APL helped identify key capability gaps, develop mobile communications requirements, and plan technology and acquisition programs to address one of SOF’s most pressing needs.
