TYSONS CORNER, VA, October 5, 2015 — Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch, senior vice president for government strategy and policy for Inmarsat‘s U.S. government business unit, said the Defense Department is looking to secure industry partners to help in the agency’s move toward a satellite communications as a service model to address cost, demand and mobility issues, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.
Cowen-Hirsch noted in an AFCEA website blog post published Wednesday that on-demand satcom services and equipment could spell the difference when it comes to mission outcomes for the warfighter.
“Satcom as a service boosts innovation and capabilities and, better yet, does so with no infrastructure or research and development investment by the government, ” Cowen-Hirsch wrote.
“Users turn to milsatcom for core requirements, then integrate industry technologies to fill the gaps to achieve absolute protection, resiliency and global portability.”
