    "The Navy is reporting significant advances in its Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite program, with a recent successful launch and the pending conclusion of a major systems test.

    The MUOS constellation offers network coverage for war fighters and combatant commanders. It enables mobile forces, including submarines, surface ships and aircraft, to communicate via the narrowband spectrum."

    This is one of the key parts of the article:

    In one demonstration, for example, Navy Special Warfare Command conducted a test using the advanced standard and saw significantly improved operational capability. “Because of the voice quality, they were able to communicate things the first time as opposed to having to repeat, and that can be a lifesaver,” Kan said.

    Now it less likely that orders and information are misunderstood.
