The Hughes Defense and Intelligence Systems Division (DISD) partnered with the Australia Defence Force (ADF) and the United States Military at Talisman Sabre 2015, a joint training exercise, to test its advanced Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) waveform technology. ADF used the Hughes HX System with advanced waveform technology to deliver high performance satellite connectivity and has plans to deploy it in future military exercises.
Colonel Shaun Love, Director Land Network Integration, ADF noted, “Australia is still maturing its understanding of deployed TDMA Satellite Operations, and the support from Hughes was fundamental to both the successful outcome of the exercise, and educating the Army on planning and executing operations utilizing TDMA waveforms.”
Talisman Sabre 2015 was the sixth biannual joint training exercise conducted with ADF and the United States Military. Thirty thousand Australian and American forces participated—the largest exercise of the year for ADF. Hughes DISD spent a year participating in trials leading up to them and provided Field Service Representatives in support of the SATCOM architecture deployed.
“Advanced TDMA waveform technology is critical for efficient global military satellite communications,” said Dan Losada, senior director at Hughes DISD. “Hughes is pleased to see the Australian Defence Force experience stronger battlefield communications with our technology and we look forward to continuing to support the Australian Army in the future.”
