Valued at $1.7 billion, this satellite AEHF-2 becomes the second of a half-dozen to be launched for the creation of a crosslinked constellation of birds that will supply communications to air, sea and ground forces anywhere in the world. Each craft is equipped with stringent anti-jamming features to get vital transmissions to the troops without concern of enemy interference. The satellite constellation's primary purpose is keeping communications flowing between the military and civilian leadership in any extreme wartime environment, which would give the U.S. information superiority.
