The Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) is the next generation Department of Defense (DoD) Ultra High Frequency (UHF) SATellite COMmunications (SATCOM) system that will provide the War-fighter with modern worldwide mobile communication services. To sustain the current UHF SATCOM constellation capabilities, the MUOS satellites will also offer a legacy UHF communications payload that will provide capabilities to existing deployed UHF terminals, utilizing dedicated and Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) waveforms such as Integrated Waveform (IW) and Demand Assigned Multiple Access (DAMA). The MUOS satellite will be very flexible in that it will support new network-centric and legacy users; however, the two payloads will not be interconnected.
