Interoperability Needs a New Meaning

#Defense industry innovators and #military leaders are very focused on expanding #interoperability to enhance #coalition operations. The U.S. DoD foresees obstacles in this transition, even though industry partners work across technology platforms regularly. During #AFCEATechnet, panelists discussed how to improve technology by better understanding missions and environments. The U.S. Air Force Space and Missiles Systems Center Pilot 2 is developing a flexible modem interface for much-needed interoperability: https://bit.ly/2SdWL7D

The pursuit of coalition interoperability has become more difficult as new technologies emerge, potential operations become more diverse and different militaries look at cooperative actions.

Immediate and Reliable Communications During Disasters Require Planning - Intelsat General Corporation

First responders and infrastructure providers across the U.S. and around the world must collaborate for #readiness. "Everyone needs to share information so that all parties know what can be brought to bear in a #disasterresponse," noted in Southern California Gas Company study. Training on #satcom technology is critical for any #emergencyresponse. https://bit.ly/2MCoc8G: https://bit.ly/2PEIpQ6

Communications during disasters require preplanning. Incorporating satellite services in an emergency response plan can ensure immediate and reliable communications before, during, and after a disaster.

Why Ku-band HTS is Superior for AISR - Intelsat General Corporation

With requirements for greater situational awareness continuing to grow, the United States Air Force Reserve created the first #ISR wing. "We need to build that knowledge and situational awareness for our Combatant Commanders in the joint force,” said the Command's director of ISR. Ku-band #COMSATCOM already delivers flexible communications to the majority of #airborne #ISR platforms today and #HTS will deliver much-needed #antijam technology. https://bit.ly/2usU347: https://bit.ly/2CNqvUq

Why is Ku-band HTS superior for airborne ISR? Intelsat General engineer Krishnan Haridasan explains three main reasons in this SatCom Frontier editorial.
