EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Feb. 10 (UPI) — Modification of commercial satellite capabilities for U.S. military use is being investigated by Boeing under a $900,000 study contract from the U.S. Air Force.

Under the award from the Military Satellite Communications Systems Directorate of the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center, Boeing will focus on communications-on-the-move missions as well as connectivity for low-altitude airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platforms operating on Ka-band frequencies.

The study recommendations are to be delivered to the Air Force in July.
