Intelsat General Issues White Paper on Satellite Platform's Interference Mitigation Capability - top government contractors - best government contracting eventAn Intelsat subsidiary has issued a white paper that seeks to show how its satellite platform works to mitigate hostile attempts to interfere with signals on the company's high-frequency satellites.

Skot Butler, president of Intelsat General, said in a statement released Wednesday the company's Interference Resolution demonstration seeks to show the capability of the Intelsat EpicNG satellite system and its digital payload against jammers that interfere with signals transmitted through the firm's satellites.

Technicians used a remote terminal that employs the Intelsat 29e satellite to transmit videos to a hub station during the demonstration.

They were able to re-establish video transmissions by reconfiguring the remote terminal and the satellite upon the detection of the interference signals.

The reconfigurations resulted in the elimination of the interference signal and establishment of a new uplink channel connected to an interference-free downlink channel.

The company launched Intelsat 29e in January 2016 as the first in its network of high-throughput satellites.

Intelsat currently operates five on-orbit EpicNG satellites and plans to launch the sixth satellite in 2018.
