Richard Anderson, senior program engineer and manager at the RF Communications Engineering Division of the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in Charleston, S.C., specifically pointed to the need to deliver the types of features consumers have in their mobile phones.
“I don’t understand why troops in the field don’t have a cell phone like I do,” he said at the Institute for Defense and Government Advancement’s Software Radio Summit Feb. 24.
