SATCOM Five Eyes Connectivity

    • Technology

In the Five Eyes Connectivity podcast special, we look at the changing face of modern warfare across the land, sea and air domains through the prism of three key technology areas: Satellite communications, line of sight data links and cybersecurity. 

In this episode, we focus on space and satellite communications and speak to military leaders about their SATCOM requirements and programmes.

As a result of the upsurge in the electronic warfare threat, Five Eyes military services are now considering the use of different applications and technologies to avoid disruption to SATCOM. 

Options include a greater reliance on commercial SATCOM providers to hide in the noise of greater amounts of radio traffic. 
There is increased use of advanced extremely high-frequency satellite systems, aimed at providing survivable anti-jam and low probability of intercept or detection SATCOM connectivity. There are also developments in on-the-move antennas to avoid interference and detection by enemy forces, as well as supporting more discreet operations. 
And we will hear from our sponsor, Viasat, about how the private sector is stepping in to help militaries develop these technology areas further.
