For C3 operations, LGS delivers sophisticated, high-performance, wired and wireless communications systems operable on multiple platforms. Our information assurance solutions help to protect the integrity of the network, from the source code to the device and application layers.
Networks & Communications: After analyzing mission needs, LGS designs, engineers, deploys, and manages sophisticated terrestrial, wireless and satellite networking solutions to enable C2 missions, using custom components as well as commercial off the shelf (COTS) technologies.
Cybersecurity & Information Assurance: LGS studies every aspect of the integrated systems that are utilized in C3 missions (from source & compiled binary code to integrated circuits, wired/wireless interfaces, communications protocols, networks/architectures, and other system elements) to identify which attack vectors may be employed to exploit each vulnerability and how to best mitigate the risk associated with each.
Mobile Telephony & Devices: Using both custom and COTS-based solutions, LGS engineers, builds, and deploys cellular base stations, evolved packet core (EPC) components, mobile end user and data modem devices, and all associated service provisioning, user authentication, and datalink security elements necessary to enable voice and data communications between mobile telephony devices.
Antennas: LGS innovative aperture solutions facilitate C3 operations via wireless analog and digital communications systems, including advanced, integrated front-end and antenna array technology designed for challenging RF environments, signal waveforms, power levels, size/weight/power constraints and user geometries.
Satellite Communications: LGS optical technologies enable bidirectional communications between C3 satellites, aircraft, and ground stations. Solutions include rare-earth-doped fiber high-powered optical amplifiers, fibreless optical amplifiers, planar lightwave circuits (PLC), optical and electrical conversion technologies, and system telemetry systems.
Communications Components: Using custom and COTS-based solutions, LGS engineers, builds, and deploys mission-specific and commercial networking equipment, including carrier-grade voice and data networking products, fixed and mobile wireless systems, local and long-haul optical transport systems, custom software-defined radios and antennas, and fibreless free-space laser communication systems.
Wireless RF: LGS engineers, builds, and deploys software-defined radios, RF front-end systems, fixed and programmable antenna arrays, transmitter and receiver systems, and all associated components necessary to communicate using radio frequencies ranging from 2MHz to 300 GHz.
