Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch of Inmarsat Government has said government leaders and the satellite communications industry must continue to work together to facilitate the integration of commercial innovation into a unified satcom architecture.

Cowen-Hirsch, senior vice president for government strategy and policy at Inmarsat Government, wrote in a MilsatMagazine article how the U.S. Air Force's Analysis of Alternatives effort highlights the urgency for a strong industry-government partnership to “ensure available solutions are fully considered as part of any recapitalization process.“

“Future integrated architecture depends on the reach, resilience and technology modernization of COMSATCOM as an essential element of mission assurance,“ she wrote.

Cowen-Hirsch noted that the satcom industry has begun to make major investments in modular terminals to advance the adoption of an integrated architecture and discussed how the satcom-as-a-service model works to deliver end-to-end communications and eliminates budget uncertainty for clients.

Satcom-as-a-service “is designed with the government in mind,“ she said.

“In addition, the SATCOM-as-a-Service model brings an end to the days of speculative SATCOM acquisition, when military operators had to “˜guess' as to where and how much bandwidth they would use,“ she added.
