Airbus Defence and Space announces Partnerships with Inmarsat Government, Hughes Network Systems, and SpeedCast to Offer Skynet Military Satellite Communication Services

Airbus Defence and Space has struck up partnerships with Inmarsat Government, Hughes Network Systems, and SpeedCast to offer Skynet military satellite communication services. The three companies are able to offer Skynet services to Australian, New Zealand and U.S. forces operating across the globe. Inmarsat Government will include Skynet services as part of its portfolio offer to U.S. government customers. Hughes will use the partnership for U.S. government tactical missions, primarily using the Xebra service, which uses the Hughes HM300 lightweight X-band satellite terminal and Airbus Defence and Space's Skynet capacity. SpeedCast will be offering the tactical secure communications services to the Australian and New Zealand government. In addition, Airbus Defence and Space has recently appointed SpeedCast to manage a new anchor station facility for the Skynet 5A military satellite, which is based at SpeedCast's existing teleport in Adelaide, Australia.

Hughes Network Systems, LLC and Airbus Defence and Space Expand Partnership for Resilient, Tactical Military Communications Solutions

Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES) has signed an agreement with Airbus Defence and Space to expand their business partnership to serve growing tactical military communications requirements around the globe. Under the agreement, Airbus Defence and Space will distribute all models of the Hughes HM System, a flexible satellite networking technology engineered around its software-definable modem (SDM) and scrambled code multiple access (SCMA) waveform. Enabling affordable, resilient solutions for various mobility and portable government user requirements, the HM System's ultra-compact terminals operate over Airbus Defence and Space's highly secure Skynet X-band military communications satellite. Hughes will also provide hardware, technology and engineering support related to use of the HM System. Additionally, Hughes will offer Skynet services to U.S. government users requiring easily deployable and resilient satellite communications for tactical missions, bringing innovative networking solutions to more U.S. users as well as customers around the globe.

Hughes Network Systems, LLC Releases Second Generation Jupiter System for High-Performance Satellite Broadband Services

Hughes Network Systems LLC announced the release of the second generation of its JUPITER System, with new capabilities that boost satellite service providers' return on their investments by raising the performance of consumer, business, and mobility applications to new levels. The new release of JUPITER builds on the established success of the first version as one of the world's most widely deployed satellite networking platforms, and features support of DVB-S2X—the satellite industry's latest approved air interface standard. Incorporating a second-generation System on a Chip (SoC-2) and new family of broadband VSATs (Very Small Aperture Terminals), the JUPITER System yields improved operating economics for satellite service providers, notably through highly efficient allocation of bandwidth available for sale to customers. DVB-S2X is widely recognized as the most bandwidth efficient standard developed for satellite transmissions. The new HT2000 family of broadband terminals includes versions for a wide range of markets including consumer, enterprise, trunking, and aeronautical mobility. Designed around the powerful SoC-2, every HT2000 remote terminal supports 200 Mbps of throughput to deliver even the most demanding applications. Hughes has also enhanced the JUPITER System's gateway architecture for improved scalability and performance. Beyond its flexible and robust design featuring lights-out operation, the new release employs extensive virtualization and advanced blade server technology resulting in as much as 10 Gbps of capacity per rack, ideal for operations on High Throughput Satellites (HTS). For conventional satellites, the same architectural approach enables cost-effective operations on up to four satellites in a single blade chassis.
