Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch, senior vice president for government strategy and policy at Inmarsat, has said warfighters seek and use protected tactical waveforms as adversaries target satellite communications through jamming.
Cowen-Hirsch wrote in a two-part blog post published Monday that the private sector continues to invest in new technology capabilities that seek to provide protected satcom and anti-jamming resistance for military satcom users.
She discussed how the spot beam architecture of the company’s Global Xpress network works to address denial of service and jamming issues as well as help distribute PTWs.
Cowen-Hirsch cited Inmarsat’s efforts to integrate cybersecurity into its satellites, terrestrial fiber and ground segments.
She also highlighted the role of industry-government collaboration, shared investments and risk sharing in helping warfighters carry out their missions.
In the first part of the blog post, Cowen-Hirsch discussed how the adoption of Ka-band satcom technology can help the military address interoperability requirements for airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
