Updating Government Satellite Service Models



Within U.S. government circles, support continues to build for an entirely integrated satellite communications (SATCOM) Department of Defense (DoD) architecture, one that would fully incorporate commercial innovation in a timely and affordable manner. To enable the government and industry to successfully advance to a state of an integrated, unified architecture, military leaders must leverage SATCOM as a Service as a “path forward.” A readily available business model to address government users’ most essential challenges, SATCOM as a Service is an end-to-end fully integrated capability that delivers mobile, high-throughput connectivity the way users seek it: easily, affordably and operationally available – anytime, anywhere. This session will elaborate upon how SATCOM as a Service can bring the government into a new era of highly capable, resilient, flexible, affordable and secure satellite operations.
