USAF wants cheaper, more secure SATCOM
The US Air Force is in the midst of conducting several studies that could ‘fundamentally change’ how the service acquires and deploys protected satellite communications (SATCOM) in the future.
The DoD is looking at ways to bring down the costs and redefine the architectures of today’s ‘aggregated’ systems that are often considered to be too complex, expensive and vulnerable to anti-satellite weapons or cyber attacks.

Enhancing electronic support to achieve spectrum dominance within multi-domain operations (sponsored)
Activity in the Electro-Magnetic Environment (EME) is increasingly focused towards supporting digital sources. The rise of wide area networking, mobile communications and automation across civilian and defence applications, means key sections of the spectrum are highly congested and, from a military perspective, increasingly contested. This growth is likely to be sustained through the proliferation of devices exploiting digitally enabled functionality through automation, internet of things and space-based data services.
