DIS companies that will join DIFI are Communications & Power Industries, DataPath, Datum Systems, Gilat Satellite Networks, SES, ST Engineering iDirect and Wavestream, the consortium said in a Dec. 22 news release.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome our new members to DIFI,” said Stuart Daughtridge, chairman of DIFI and senior vice president for advanced technologies at Kratos Defense and Security Solutions. “We share the same goal of bringing the satellite industry into greater compatibility with the global communications infrastructure through the creation of common standards.”
