Utilizing industry best practices, defense agencies can get the most out of their SATCOM systems with an enterprise focus for end-to-end networking solutions and cost optimization.
Use Commercial Best Practices to Get the Most out of Your SATCOM Systems
Today’s austere budget environment presents major obstacles to the ability of defense organizations to update or procure new satellite systems.
Tight budgets make it more important than ever that defense organizations utilize commercial best practices to increase capabilities at the lowest possible cost. Bandwidth-efficiency is inherent to Hughes systems and technologies and can yield significant savings for the military in SATCOM applications, while also reducing hardware and operational costs. A commercial, best-practices approach to reduce size, weight, and cost of portable SATCOM equipment— such as antennas and battery packs—while increasing communications capabilities in a bandwidth-constrained environment, may be the best strategy to equip today’s warfighter. Hughes works with defense organizations to ensure they are getting the most out of their equipment investment.
A Roadmap for Future Development
Hughes provides end-to-end, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions that meet U.S. cryptographic standards and deliver tactical, communications-on-the-move (COTM) capabilities with global service coverage.
