MUOS-5 is the fifth communications spacecraft for the Navy's Mobile User Objective System. Acting as cellphone towers from their geosynchronous parking spots over the equator 22,300 miles high, the MUOS satellites together generate global coverage and reach just miles shy of the poles. MUOS No. 5, the in-space spare of the system, will be placed over the Indian Ocean. MUOS serves a dual-provider of both voice traffic currently routed by the Navy's legacy generation, albeit aging, Ultra High Frequency Follow-On spacecraft.
