However critical or complex the requirement,
count on Hughes for dependable, end-to-end
airborne communications solutions.

Adaptable Solutions for Airborne Needs

Real-time sharing of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) information is imperative in military and homeland defense communities today—making live airborne video surveillance crucial to operational success. Adaptable SATCOM solutions from Hughes are ideal for net-centric airborne communications around the world, delivering video, voice, and high-speed data services to and from airborne platforms anywhere—including fixed wing, rotary wing, and UAV’s.

Airborne ISR

Hughes solutions are D0-160-certified and enable sophisticated, real-time IP applications such as airborne ISR, including streaming live video links back to operating centers at multi-megabit data rates. Virtually any airborne system platform can be supported, as Hughes works with third-party antenna manufacturers to provide full system integration of hatch-mount, fuselage-mount, and tail-mount antennas.

HX System

The proven, on-board, commercial HX platform provides significant advantages for military and intelligence applications, particularly in maintaining links under adverse conditions. Information reaches the HX terminal from five separate satellite gateways, each enabling service on a different satellite. By backhauling traffic on the system, a single platform is able to track the position of the aircraft as it switches from one gateway coverage area into another and dynamically establish new connections.

HM System

The HM System is based on a software-definable modem technology along with the Hughes scrambled code multiple access (SCMA) waveform that allows it to deliver a superior level of mobile video, voice and data communications. Ideal for BLoS connectivity requirements, the HM200 modem allows for high-speed transmit/receive data transmissions, even through rotary blades. The HM200 is packed in a Short Form Factor rugged IP67 sealed enclosure making it an optimal choice for fixed and rotary wing UAV’s.
