Hughes Network Systems LLC announced the demonstration of advanced hardware technology that facilitates interoperability between different SATCOM systems and services.
The terminal solution features a software agent with an autonomous selection of modem, satellite and service provider.
“The benefits of this new technology will allow the Department of Defense to fully leverage commercial HTS and future LEO and MEO networks in addition to their own satellites to deliver uninterrupted communications, especially in contested environments,” said Dr. Rajeev Gopal, senior technical director of advanced systems at Hughes.
The Flexible Modem Interface (FMI) presentation exhibited the hardware and enterprise management solution prototype developed by Hughes as part of a pilot study program exploring new interoperable SATCOM capabilities for future military systems.
The Multi-modem Adaptor from Hughes enables interoperability between multiple service options in individual terminals to reinforce resiliency, automate provisioning and improve network operational efficiency.
