Viasat Launches Kit to Allow for Hybrid Satellite Architectures

Viasat has launched a modification kit that will help third-party satellite terminal providers access and align with a variety of government-used architectures.

The company said Monday its new government-tailored modification kit is designed to allow for the accommodation of hybrid, multi-network architectures. 

Third-party vendors associated with the Department of Defense and foreign allies may access and test the modification kit.

The terminal kit will allow military customers to use a range of satcom terminals on a hybrid, interoperability-focused architecture.

In addition, the kit's technology accommodates interoperability with medium Earth orbit and geostationary orbit satellites across military and commercial constellations.

“By working proactively with a number of partners that offer government-focused commercial off-the-shelf terminals we can enable an open, robust, scalable satcom network that provides U.S. and coalition government customers with a variety of options to quickly address diverse mission needs,“ said Ken Peterman, president of government systems at Viasat.
