FREE – Registration Required
At a time when U.S. Government Satcom programs have experienced schedule and budget challenges, there has been an increased reliance on commercial satellites as a means for providing communications capability.
Government missions with the fastest growing satcom requirements risk not being able to meet the needs of soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines. The environment has created a necessity to challenge paradigms and examine the traditional dividing lines between what commercial and military satellites should do.
Join Via Satellite and SES for this important webinar and participate in the discussion on how to do things more efficiently and how the market can do things differently. This webinar will examine the entire U.S. government architecture and explore ways in which the commercial industry can provide more capabilities to government customers with fewer risks and at lower costs.
Get your questions answered, plus learn about:
- UAVs are consuming large amounts of bandwidth to pipe video feeds and data back to intel centers and forces on the ground. Even with the advent of WGS, the vast majority of operational UAV capacity resides on commercial satellites today. Does the demand for this capacity outpace the supply WGS will offer?
- How important will it be for the satellite industry to be prepared and armed with the requirements data needed to support our government customers' mission requirements?
- Without open dialogue and coordination on future needs, will U.S. government customers be forced to compete with the growing civilian use of commercial satcom for satellite TV and Internet services in underserved countries in the same areas where the demand is highest for military operations?
