Lockheed Martin has developed a Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) Terrestrial Emulator (MTE) to provide the joint war-fighter insight into future capability as well as to anticipate, plan and incorporate MUOS into relevant tactics, techniques and procedures prior to MUOS Initial Operational Capability (IOC). This paper will discuss the insights gained from a series of Joint DoD field experiments involving the MTE to understand the impact of MUOS support to distributed military operations. As military operations continue to diversify in nature, distributed operations have become increasingly larger in geographic scale and distribution while traditional communications networks struggle to keep pace.
