Against the backdrop of rising ‘peer’ and regional state rivals, the role of space-based assets for effective missile defence will be critical.
Aggregated SATCOM accelerates in the US
In the age of Great Power Competition, armed forces require secure and resilient communication pathways to ensure maximum levels in connectivity even when operating in the most contested of environments.
Seeking to satisfy these demand signals, industry is offering various aggregated communications solutions capable of integrating a variety of networks, ranging from SATCOM and Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) communications to 4G and 5G networks.
Examples include the Transport Aggregation Gateway (TAG) solution, which L3Harris Technologies designed to ensure critical communications in denied and degraded C2 environments.
Speaking to Shephard, L3Harris product director Shane Sims explained how TAG relies …
