12015-06-24. На тестовом полигоне U.S. Ronald Reagan Missile Defense установлена система оптиволоконой связи для управления антеннами.
На тестовом полигоне U.S. Ronald Reagan Missile Defense установлена система связи компании ViaLite Communications. Целью системы является связь центра управления и отдаленных антенн.
Антенны используются чтобы контролировать последнюю минуту перед приводнением и расположены на необитаемых островах Illiginni и Gagan, которые входят в атолл Кваджалейн находящийся в Северном Тихом океане. До установки нового оборудования, тестирование, переключение частот или изменение направления антенны требовало, вылета инженеров на вертолете. После установки эти задачи могут выполняться удаленно из центра управления, используя установленную систему.Тэги: U.S. Ronald Reagan Missile Defense
