Why Commercial Satcom Technology should be Leveraged for the Military

If the average American can make a cell phone call without worrying about whether the provider has enough bandwidth, shouldn't the nation's warfighters receive the same? There is no reason why they shouldn't. According to Peterman, president of Government Systems at communication satellite provider Viasat, "The service the Defense Department provides to soldiers should be exactly like their cell phone service: high-quality, dependable and available anywhere at any time with continually expanding speed and capacity to meet next-generation technologies."


Increase military asset readiness with a powerful combination of cognitive technologies

Readiness — the US military’s ability to perform its required missions everywhere, all the time — is shaped by many factors. In addition to the abilities and well-being of military personnel, readiness includes the availability, uptime and performance of military equipment. In turn, readily available equipment saves time, money and lives


Intelligence at the Speed of Conflict

US ground forces handle massive amounts of information and data while working under unpredictable conditions. These conditions don’t always allow military intelligence analysts access to a technologically reliable way to share information. They must overcome both enterprise communication challenges, which force them to operate, at times, with little to no access to data, and information overload when connections are available. They must also find ways to deal effectively with the complexity associated with the wide variety of evolving data sources.


Intelsat Epic: Realizing Resilient Tactical Networks with Maximum Government Control on an Open Architecture High-Throughput Satellite

Global, high-performance connectivity is essential for military satellite communications, and high-throughput satellite (HTS) technology is ideally suited for many government applications.


Why Federal Agencies Are Embracing Technology Business Management

Technology Business Management (TBM) enables federal agencies to run their IT like a business by delivering greater transparency and accountability to their IT spending, translating that IT spend into business and mission value, and powering data-driven decisions that drive IT optimization, innovation, business transformation, and improved services.


Reinvent Readiness with Cognitive Technology

Gen. Gustave (Gus) Perna, commander of the Army Materiel Command, repeatedly stresses readiness as the Army’s most fundamental priority. Defined broadly as the ability of the U.S. armed forces to perform their required missions, readiness” is shaped by many factors. These include the ability of military personnel and the availability and performance of military equipment.

Advancing Analytics with Cognitive Technology

U.S. ground forces handle a massive amount of information and data while working under unpredictable conditions. That means military intelligence analysts don’t always have a technologically reliable way to share and receive information. They must overcome both enterprise communication challenges, which force them to operate for periods with little to no access to data and information overload when connections are available.
