U.S. Air Force Selects Hughes to Develop Enterprise Management and Control Prototype for SATCOM Resilience April 07, 2020 Company News false Hughes to employ Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to enable interoperability among military and commercial satellite networks Hughes was awarded a $2.2M contract funded by the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Command, through the Space Enterprise Consortium (SpEC), to produce an Enterprise Management & Control prototype solution for interoperable military and commercial SATCOM networks. The prototype will include the Hughes Flexible Modem Interface (FMI) which will enhance interoperability across various SATCOM networks to form a unified, hybrid network architecture. “Using our AI-based terminal management and control technologies, we will demonstrate a solution for fixed and mobile terminals to roam intelligently among available commercial and military satellite systems for exponential improvements in network resiliency, capacity, and cost models,” said Dr. Rajeev Gopal, vice president of Advanced Defense Programs for Hughes. Enabling higher resiliency, when an active transmission becomes degraded or disrupted, the terminals can “self- heal” to maintain connectivity using alternate networks. The demonstration will also utilize the Hughes HM System which enables Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, helicopters and other aircraft to transmit real-time feeds of HD video and other Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance data over satellite.” Categories See All Connecting the Unconnected (49) Satellite is Essential (47) Company News (42) JUPITER System (29) HughesNet (25) HughesON Managed Networks (18) SD-WAN (16) Podcast (15) Community Wi-Fi (15) Emergency Communications (12) Interoperability (11) Cellular Backhaul (10) Mobility (8) Popular Blogs Better Satellite World Podcast: Space for All, Season 2 - The Rural ImperativeMay 24, 2021 The Future of ConnectivityJun 9, 2021 Peru School System and HughesNet Connect Students to Educational ResourcesJun 15, 2021 Upcoming 3GPP Release 17 to Include Satellite in Global 5G StandardJun 22, 2021 Disaster Communications Systems with Tony BardoJun 28, 2021 Related Posts See All Defining Moments in Hughes 50 Year History July 23, 2021 How Hughes Fosters a Culture of Continuous Innovation July 23, 2021 HughesNet and 4-H Inspire Tomorrow’s STEM Leaders, Impacts that Last Say Hughes Employees July 19, 2021 Hughes India Enables Access to Vital Banking Services May 11, 2021 HughesNet Named Best Satellite Internet Service, Meets Increased Demand in More Places May 07, 2021 ENJOY THIS POST?
