TYSONS CORNER, VA, Nov. 10, 2016 — Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch of Inmarsat and Rick Lober of Hughes Network Systems have stated that commercial platforms could support the U.S. military’s broadband communications and satellite coverage needs, ExecutiveBiz reported Nov. 2.
“The opportunity lies in engaging with commercial industry to learn what capabilities we are investing in so that it becomes an intentional forethought on what the architectural concepts could be, ” Cowen-Hirsch, an Inmarsat senior vice president, said in a Space News Magazine report published Oct. 24.
Lober, a Hughes vice president, has noted that some reluctance is still present in the space community to use other satellite communications technologies despite budget constraints, the report said.
