Viasat has presented a satellite communications networking technology during a recent virtual event that was hosted by the U.S. Air Force’s AFWERX outfit and featured presentations from 30 industry teams.

The company said Tuesday it demonstrated the potential of a hybrid adaptive network to support an open enterprise satcom architecture intended for joint all-domain command and control operations.

“We conducted a ‘Live Fire’ demonstration of a layered, resilient communications architecture that seamlessly roamed across multiple satellite networks, operated over various frequency bands, waveforms and provided independent, diversified network options for tactical, secure, cross-domain C2 communications and fires,” said Ken Peterman, president of Viasat’s government systems business.

Peterman added that the company aims to help warfighters exchange situational awareness data with the HAN architecture.

The AFWERX organization created a contract vehicle that serve as a means for defense agencies to access commercial technology offerings from participants in the demo event.
