Mobile User Objective System 2 satellite

The Navy's Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) 2 satellite is encapsulated inside a 5-meter diameter payload fairing before being mated with an Atlas V rocket. MUOS is a next-generation narrow band tactical satellite communications system designed to significantly improve beyond-line-of-sight communications for U.S. forces on the move.
