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.
Kelvin Hughes has been selected by bridge integrator OSI Maritime Systems Ltd (OSI) to supply a number of SharpEye solid-state naval radar sensors for installation on board Lockheed Martins LCS 27 and four LCS-based Multi Mission Surface Combatant (MMSC) vessels for Saudi Arabia. Working closely with OSI, Kelvin Hughes is providing the X band and S Band SharpEye sensors for integration into an IMO-approved OSI Bridge and Navigation system
Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES) has been awarded a follow-on contract to continue the second phase of a pilot study program to assess the feasibility of interoperability across multiple satellite communication (SATCOM) systems for the Department of Defense (DoD). Under this award, Hughes will be responsible for prototyping a Flexible Modem Interface (FMI) for military terminals that will enable various military and commercial systems and services to interoperate in the field
UK based Kelvin Hughes has won a contract to supply its SharpEye Doppler radar system to the second of the Pakistan Navys Agosta 90B-class (also known as the Khalid-class attack submarine) upgrade program. Working with Turkish defence contractor STM, the main contractor for the refurbishment programme, Kelvin Hughes will supply the SharpEye system to the first submarine in 2018 and the second in 2019
Kelvin Hughes is to supply Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) two SharpEye navigation radars along with multifunction bridge radar displays for the Philippine Navys Frigate Acquisition Project (FAP). The Philippine Navy FAP was awarded to HHI in October 2016 to build two 2,600 ton frigates for hand over starting in 2020
