Maryland Interoperability Innovation Center
Our Maryland Interoperability Innovation Center provides Software Engineering, Modeling & Simulation, and Hardware Design for a variety of Communications. We provide Rapid Acquisition, Development, Integration, and Test Support Services, enabling critical component deliveries to meet aggressive development and low-rate production schedules. At this innovation center, we ensure that industry radio, software defined radios and waveform development efforts are cost-effective and align with our customer’s domain architecture. Our Design, Development, and Fielding Support has increased legacy communication capabilities, enhanced operational effectiveness, and reduced lifecycle costs with our work on 5G technologies.
The Maryland Interoperability Innovation Center Contains a SATCOM Lab focused on satellite terminal development, interoperability, integration, test, and repair. The SATCOM Lab consists of three (3) major elements:
- A Radio Frequency Lab
- A Mobile Lab outfitted for Airborne Satellite Terminal Development, Integration, and Functional & Performance Certification Testing
- CONUS Satellite Network to Support Advanced Testing
Our Maryland Interoperability Innovation Center has a full suite of Ku-band, L-band and modem test equipment. The lab also has test fixtures and troubleshooting tools supporting repair of commercial antenna and modem products. The innovation center houses an environmental chamber instrumented for Ku-band and L-band devices, which is used primarily for environmental screening/testing of modems and antenna RF components using cold and heat cycles. Other infrastructure includes satellite network infrastructure (Hub, Routers, Switches, VPN Devices, etc.) to support Satellite Terminal Development, Integration, Test, and Repair.
The Maryland Interoperability Innovation Center also consists of a customized vehicle outfitted with racks, LRU mounting trays, wiring, cabling, power systems, test equipment and airborne satellite terminal equipment focused on creating a “real-world” mobile test environment. The mobile lab enables Over-The-Air (OTA) satellite testing in conjunction with the CONUS satellite network. The mobile lab also serves as a final Quality Assurance (QA) step for equipment prior to our integration on our customer’s platforms.
The CONUS satellite network consists of a MAG owned Evolution Hub hosted at a commercial teleport. The teleport connects the Hub on the IF side to IF/RF converters, RF receivers/transmitters and an 11-meter satellite antenna pointed at Intelsat’s G-16 satellite (other satellite options are available). The teleport connects the Hub on the baseband side to the public Internet (private fiber options are available). The network is remotely managed by MAG. The satellite network routinely supports mobile lab testing and has also been used for flight test support.
