Globecomm systems for USS Gerald R Ford
The US Navy’s new aircraft carrier, USS Gerald R Ford, has been equipped with a Globecomm multi-functional communications system along with the first internet protocol (IP) video system in the navy's fleet.
Under a contract with Huntington Ingalls Industries' Newport News Shipbuilding, Globecomm has supplied an advanced satellite and fibre-optic based communications distribution infrastructure. The vessel is also equipped with a newly improved SITE TV IP video system that provides the crew with live streaming media options and multimedia programming while at sea, as well as pier-side cable services.
A 10G fibre optic backbone will support the system and the ship's video surveillance capabilities. The system includes an interface to the onboard video production studio where live and pre-recorded broadcasts can be viewed and accessed.
Other capabilities include video on demand, digital signage and collaborative access to webcasting and video sharing applications.
