Rajeev Gopal, senior technical director of advanced systems at Hughes, said the technology will work to help DoD use commercial high-throughput satellite systems and future low and medium Earth orbit networks to manage communications.

The company developed its platform through a pilot study program focused on satcom tools and methods for potential military use.
