ViaLite’s RF Links meet US Military WGS Standard

August 24, 2017


ViaLite Communications has announced that its RF over fiber links are compliant with the US army MIL-STD-188
164B ARSTRAT-WGS standard. 
Craig Somach confirmed the successful testing of the ViaLiteHD RF over fiber transmission equipment with tests 
carried out in-conjunction with a US systems integrator. ViaLite's high performance L-Band HTS RF over fiber links 
were shown to deliver better than -60 dBC at 10 dBm input power. 
Following qualification, ViaLite's links can be used to connect ground stations for the Wideband Global Satcom 
(WGS) system; a high capacity satellite communications system principally designed and developed for the US 
Department of Defense. 
MIL-STD-188-164 is a series of technical standards and design objectives relating to interoperability and performance 
common to both long haul and tactical communications systems. 
As well as being able to operate over long distances due to their low attenuation, RF over optical fiber systems can 
prevent attempts to eavesdrop or corrupt critical operational data. The fiber is also immune to electromagnetic 
pulse (EMP) strikes and allows antennas to be located greater distances away from assets.
