U.S. Air Force Selects Hughes to Develop Enterprise Management and Control Prototype for SATCOM Resilience April 07, 2020 Company News Satcom 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 (33) Satellite is Essential (31) Company News (30) JUPITER System (24) HughesNet (23) HughesON Managed Networks (16) SD-WAN (15) Community Wi-Fi (13) Satcom (10) Interoperability (10) Cellular Backhaul (10) Emergency Communications (9) Mobility (7) HughesON Digital Signage (1) Popular Blogs The Simple Solution for Digital InclusionSep 29, 2020 The Promise of Flexible SatellitesOct 7, 2020 A Call for Spectrum Reform: An Issue We Can All Stand BehindOct 13, 2020 Adaptive Coding and Modulation Now Available for TDMA Return ChannelsOct 22, 2020 Mega-constellations, Multi-transport Networks and Managing the Hybrid, Connected FutureOct 27, 2020 Related Posts See All A Call for Spectrum Reform: An Issue We Can All Stand Behind Jennifer A.
