Overcoming the distance challenges of the INDOPACOM AoR with SATCOM

Covering half the globe and containing two near-peer adversaries, the #INDOPACOM AoR is an important and challenging one for our military. In the latest post on the Government Satellite Report, Eric Gunzelman talks about the role that high-throughput, low-latency satellite communications can play in helping the military personnel stationed in this AoR accomplish their mission. http://bit.ly/2HXM9JX

Each of the United States military’s ten combatant commands, and the domains and missions that they are responsible for, have their own unique challenges and obstacles. For the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM), one of those unique challenges involves logistics. You only have to look at a map ...

SES Bets on New Fleet of Smaller, Flexible Boeing Satellites

"Chief Executive Karim Sabbagh said the satellites will add capacity and replace some bandwidth now provided by big, high-flying spacecraft that need replacement. Indicating that the emphasis on smaller spacecraft built to be swiftly reconfigured in orbit is gaining momentum, he said the constellation will be “radically different” from traditional concepts because it is designed to be “more flexible and scaleable." https://www.wsj.com/articles/ses-bets-on-new-fleet-of-smaller-flexible-boeing-satellites-1505070180

Satellite-services provider SES on Monday intends to announce a deal for a new fleet of smaller, easily reprogrammable Boeing satellites, reflecting widespread industry uncertainty about demand for global internet connectivity.
