Hughes Network Systems has introduced an open architecture-based system that works to provide mobile satellite communications for government clients.
The HM System is built on scrambled code multiple access waveform and software-definable modem platforms that work to facilitate bandwidth sharing, Hughes said Thursday.
Rick Lober, vice president and general manager of defense and intelligence systems division at Hughes, said the system works to facilitate mobility and portability through bandwidth sharing.
Hughes unveiled the HM System in three commercial-off-the-shelf offerings: HM100, HM200 and HM300.
HM100 is a universal modem built to support land-based satcom operations, while HM200 is a ruggedized, mobile modem that can work with aerial, ground and maritime platforms.
HM300 is a portable terminal designed to provide X-band communications as well as voice and data speed of up to 512 kilobits per second.
