Marines get smart phone network for humanitarian missions

Lockheed Martin has developed a tactical smart phone network designed to support humanitarian assistance and disaster relief missions undertaken by the Marine Corps around the globe, company officials said Nov. 8.

The Office of Naval Research has purchased for the Marine Corps the company’s MONAX system, a portable private 4G network that furnishes voice, data and video through commercial smart phone technologies, the officials said.

The system can connect hundreds of users to a single base station.
