MILSTAR (Military Strategic & Tactical Relay) is the tactical and strategic multiservice satellite system designed to provide survivable communications for U.S. forces worldwide. The system needed to achieve higher data-rate modes than the low and medium-data-rate modes of the older generation MILSTAR satellites which were written in J3 JOVIAL software technology. This required the JOVIAL code to be modernized, which enabled the system's operation on newer hardware with simplified maintenance.
