1 1 The sun never sets on USASMDC/ARSTRAT “Secure the High Ground” Combat SkySat Deployment Unit Brief POCs: LTC John Rayburn – ARSTRAT G33 Jeff Faunce – ARSTRAT Future Warfare Center Dave Snyder – ARSTRAT Future Warfare Center (719) FOUO 10 Jan 2012

2 2 The sun never sets on USASMDC/ARSTRAT “Secure the High Ground” 173 rd BCT Submits REF Request 3 May 2010 (limitation and mitigating capability shown below) OCO Funding Received for Combat SkySat Deployment Oct 2011 Short History - Successful demos in theater (FOB Shank) and AEWE (Ft Benning) - Currently in operation by USMC - Supports C5ISR ONS CONOPs (Updated Sept 2011)

3 3 The sun never sets on USASMDC/ARSTRAT “Secure the High Ground” Communication Capabilities Provided 24x7 UHF vx/data retrans Ops (remotely reconfigurable) S6/G6 determines appropriate role/mission Enabling P.A.C.E commo capabilities (1-8 channels) Compatible with standard radios including PRC-117F, PRC-148 (MBITR), PSC-5 & ARC-210 (aircraft radios) Transmits in MHz, Receive in MHz (both secure or non-secure) No additional soldier load required Forward Operating Base FOB X Launch & C2 Site Dismounts MBITR Normal Range: ~2 mi LOS MBITR Enabled with Combat SkySat: miles MBITR Normal Range: ~2 mi LOS MBITR Enabled with Combat SkySat: miles System Attributes Operational system consisting of: Expendable balloons and payload (no recovery required) Launch and C2 system Platform launched in 20 minutes/climbs at 1k’/min Persistent coverage from altitudes above 65,000 feet (~8-12 hrs/launch – multiple launch capable) No airspace deconfliction required! Wide field of regard requires frequency deconfliction Launch Prep C2 System System Launch Deployment Support Considerations Minimal support crew required Potentially draw from ARSST/Field Service Reps Operator class/TDY funds available Lessons learned from USMC and USN Acquiring systems now Helium supply source worked by SMDC

4 4 The sun never sets on USASMDC/ARSTRAT “Secure the High Ground” Persistence ~8 hrs/launch - multiple launch capable Flight Altitude (60,000 feet plus field of regard) –Wide area coverage/Coverage into complex terrain –Above terrestrial weather & congested airspace Survivable – payload NOT recovered Flexible - Remotely reconfigurable RTNS payload P.A.C.E. Commo Considerations –MSR Support (BDE/DIV GS role) –QRF net/Standing RTNS net for any echelon –Possibly tying into ANW2 network –AVN/SAR capable/See SIPR for Comm Architectures Conserve manned RTNS assets (air/gnd) High Altitude Attributes / Effects Example FOB and MSR LOS Situation FOB MSR LOS is restricted and HA needs to be taken in to signal planning Patrol on convoy MSR route – limited LOS communications

5 5 The sun never sets on USASMDC/ARSTRAT “Secure the High Ground” Flight Altitude: 25K Coverage – 15% Flight Altitude: 15K Coverage – 5% Combat SkySat Flight Altitude: 75K Coverage – 69% Altitude Decreases LOS Deadspace All altitudes are MSL Centered over a 220mi X 220mi AOI example in mountainous terrain 5 This slide FOUO Bagram Jalalabad Ghazni Kabul Puli Khumri

6 6 The sun never sets on USASMDC/ARSTRAT “Secure the High Ground” Potential Linkage to C5ISR CONOPs (Sept 2011) Capability 1: Aerial Layer Range Extension – Complete deployment of 117G (ANW2), EPLRS, SINCGARS and associated integration kits to all identified FOBs and COPs in RC-E and RC-S. Capability 2: Meshed Aerial Layer backbone – Complete deployment of the meshed aerial layer bakcbone (HNRe2, QNT/TTNT) to all identified FOBs and COPS in RC-E and RC-S; integrate FMV baseband capabilities to the network. Capability 3: Range extension to Enable Users at the tactical edge – Support Integration of C5ISR into Aerial Layer and existing communications infrastructure to all identified FOBs and COPs in RC-S. Source: C5ISR CONOPs Combat SkySat capabilities (when integrated) fit into capability 1 and 3 * Phase 1 of C5ISR ONS has been validated/funded
