Download file 19 November 2013

The importance of networks in today’s globalised world cannot be overestimated. In fact, satellite communications (SATCOM) have become critical elements for defence, security, humanitarian, emergency response or diplomatic communications. Satellite communications are a key enabler for civil and military missions/operations in particular in remote and austere environments with little or no infrastructure. With increasing dependence on highly sensitive information for decision-making processes and secure links for example for remote operation of unmanned systems, secure, large and highly available connectivity in a resilient network has become increasingly crucial.
