Boeing successfully reconfigured an orbiting U.S. Navy satellite, adding 30 % more communications capability. The satellite, the 11th in the Ultra-High Frequency Follow-On (UFO) series, was launched in 2003 and supports the Navy's global communications network, including fixed and mobile terminals. The UFO has a digital signal processor that lets remote users reprogram existing user channels and identify small, unused portions of the allocated radio frequency spectrum, which resulted in 10 additional channels, for a total of 54, according to Boeing.
