Vencore awarded DoD cellular research contract

Vencore has been awarded a $6 million Department of Defense contract for cellular communications research.

Under the three-year contract for the Cellular Range Telemetry Network, or CeRTN, program, Vencore Labs (formerly known as Applied Communication Sciences) "will develop a prototype system that leverages commercial cellular technology for Aeronautical Mobile Telemetry (AMT) applications at DoD Major Range and Test Facility bases," according to a Vencore news release.

"The Vencore Labs CeRTN system will provide robust cellular coverage for AMT using commercial-off-the-shelf cellular technology devices," the company said. "Specifically, the system will adapt commercial cellular equipment for use in delivering telemetry data from high-speed test vehicles during flight test exercises, ultimately providing frequency reuse and improved spectral efficiency."
