MUOS-4 Patch 5th SLS

Product no.: T103371 Notify when available

The U.S. Navy’s Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) is a next-generation narrowband tactical satellite communications system designed to significantly improve ground communications for U.S. forces on the move. MUOS will provide military users more communications capability over existing systems, including simultaneous voice, video and data - similar to the capabilities experienced today with smart phones.  This is the patch issued by the 5th SLS Support Squadron which oversees operations relating to the Atlas V Launch Vehicle.

The AtlasV is clearly represented on the patch. Surrounded by 4 white stars which are representative of the 4th MUOS satellite to be placed in orbit.  The anchor on the patch represents the relationship between the communication's satellite and the Navy.   AV-056 is the tail number of the launch vehicle.  The 5 red stars represent the 5th SLS.  "Non Sibi Sed Patriae", meaning "not for self, but for fatherland" is a phrase that can be found inscribed on some war memorials as well as over the chapel doors at the United States Naval Academy.

On the lower edge of the patch the Atlas emblem can be found.
