Australian Modernised High Frequency Communications System

Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
: 10 March, 2009  (New Product)
Boeing Defence Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company, has achieved a significant milestone toward delivery of the Modernised High Frequency Communications System (MHFCS) to the Australian Defence Force (ADF).
The land-and-sea Generic Mobile Upgrade System, the first of two mobile high-frequency (HF) communications systems for MHFCS, has passed formal testing. The final phase of testing, conducted at Boeing Defence Australia's Brisbane site over two weeks, involved executing 44 test cases and testing more than 200 requirements.

'The successful completion of this test means the upgraded system is ready for integration onto ADF military land and sea assets. It also means we've passed a critical milestone toward final system acceptance by the Commonwealth of Australia,' said Steve Parker, vice president and general manager of Boeing Network and Space Systems -- Australia.

The MHFCS consists of two phases: the core system and the final system. The core system, delivered in 2005, replaced three of the ADF's aging HF communications systems with a single integrated system consisting of four HF radio stations and two purpose-built control centers. The final system will provide greater levels of automation, performance and capability for ADF users; a backup network management facility; and two Generic Mobile Upgrade Systems -- one land-and-sea component and one air platforms component. Final MHFCS acceptance is planned for 2010.

'The next step for us is to complete testing on the air platforms component,' said Parker. 'We are on track to achieve this in May.'

The ADF uses the MHFCS to securely transmit voice and data services such as e-mail, facsimiles and Web browsing. It is considered the world's most advanced strategic HF communications network because of its automation levels, range and clarity, traffic volume and connection speed.
