Virtualization Enables Infrastructure Interoperability, Optimization and Resiliency
With the emergence of High Throughput Satellites (HTS) such as those from Hughes and Viasat, High Capacity Satellites (HCS) from operators like Intelsat and SES, as well as new Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellations from companies like OneWeb, SpaceX, and Amazon to name a few, proprietary waveforms and terminals are often developed to optimize the performance within those purpose-built networks. Up until now, users would need to employ disparate purpose-built and often proprietary hardware to access these constellations and networks.
Virtualization, not to be confused with the notion of a Software Defined Radio allows users who require satellite network flexibility and resiliency to benefit from the ability to operate across these various networks, satellites, and constellations without having to carry and interconnect numerous proprietary platforms.
The modernization, proliferation and commoditization of electronics make contending with peer and near-peer adversaries more difficult, lethal and deadly.
Speed is of the essence as the U.S. Army works earnestly with industry to equip the force with the latest tools to combat cyber attacks.
The Integrated Tactical Network is the name of the Army’s envisioned future network, and integration is the name of the game for one of the service’s premier research and development centers.
