Boeing demonstrates SATCOM on the Move
Boeing has announced that it has successfully demonstrated its SATCOM on the Move (SOTM) product on a live Ka-band satellite network. The company made the announcement 3 June, 2012.
The demonstration in May connected three sites in Australia and the United States using integrated voice, video, and data communications over the increased bandwidth available on the latest generation Ka-band satellite mobile terminals, using the Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) system, also developed by Boeing.
According to the company, during the demonstration, High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (Humvees) fitted with cameras and handheld radios successfully connected to test labs in Australia and the US, simultaneously combining videoconferencing with military radio and telephones. The integrated SOTM demonstration ‘proved core elements of a seamless, secure and deployable communications system’.
This latest SOTM product evolved from combat-proven technologies used by the US Army during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Boeing said, showing the ‘maturity and readiness’ of the company’s capabilities in the suite of services required to provide satellite communications on the move’.
