Abstract : The Family of Advanced Beyond Line-of-Sight Terminals (FAB-T) program will develop nuclear survivable terminals capable of communicating with the Milstar and Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellite constellations using both the Extremely High Frequency and AEHF jam-resistant Low Probability of Intercept/Low Probability of Detect waveforms. These terminals will be an essential component of the strategic nuclear execution system. FAB-T terminals will upgrade the existing ground (fixed and transportable) Command Post Terminals (CPTs) as well as the airborne E-4B and E-6 aircraft CPTs. Terminals for the B-2, B-52, and RC-135 aircraft are planned for future installments. Mission capabilities include Presidential and National Voice Conferencing; Integrated Tactical Warning Attack Assessment; Emergency Action Message Dissemination; Telemetry, Tracking & Control; and Force Reportback.
