TRW has placed an order with BAE Systems for single-board computers, to be used on the new generation US Air Force Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) communications satellites.

The RAD750 computers are to be used on the satellites' digital communications payload. BAE is also supplying various radiation-hardened custom logic and memory components.

The AEHF geostationary four-satellite fleet will form a cross-linked constellation providing secure, survivable and protected communications for the military. The new satellites will replace the existing Milstar II fleet.
