Talking turkey about satellite terminals

Increasing the resiliency of #space and #satellite infrastructure is a top priority for the #military today. In his latest post on the Government Satellite Report, Philip Harlow looks at why terrestrial #hardware – especially the satellite terminal – is an essential consideration for ensuring the warfighter always has access to satellite communications. https://hubs.ly/H0mW8Z60 #govIT

When it comes to military space and satellite capabilities, resiliency has become the primary focus and concern. Today’s military knows the tactical and technological edge that it gets from its satellite networks and architecture, and it’s set on trying to preserve that edge for the warfighter. ...

PODCAST: The advanced technologies connecting emergency response efforts

When disaster strikes – whether it’s a #wildfire or a #hurricane – terrestrial communication networks are often among the first casualties, leaving first responders disconnected and unable to coordinate efforts. In a recent podcast, experts from SES Government Solutions, Verizon and goTenna come together to talk about the new technologies that are making collaboration and communication possible in emergency response situations. https://hubs.ly/H0mdj8q0

Whether we’re talking about wildfires like these or massive, 100-year hurricanes, large emergencies and natural disasters are devastating for the people and governments that are impacted. They force people from their homes and into emergency, temporary shelter. They cause billions in damage. And t...

Communication During Deployment

The ability to communicate with loved ones while deployed is critical to a soldier’s well-being. When traditional communication systems are unavailable, satellites ensure soldiers won’t lose connection with home. https://hubs.ly/H0lfqvK0 #AUSA2019 #MilitaryWellness

Communications play a critical role when a servicemember is physically absent. Maintaining an emotional connection is essential in sustaining a relationship. Active communication also boosts morale for both the servicemember and those left at home.
