Inmarsat’s Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch: Commercial Satcom Provides Operational Flexibility, Resilience for Military Systems

Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch

TYSONS CORNER, VA, April 24, 2017 — Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch, senior vice president for government strategy and policy at Inmarsat, has said she believes commercial satellite communications serves to support military satcom requirements amid potential operational challenges, ExecutiveBiz reported Wednesday.

She told Federal News Radio in an interview posted April 17 that the company’s Global Xpress network is an example of commercial satcom that is interoperable with military systems such as the Wideband Global Satcom.

“We think that this provides not only significant operational flexibility but from the security standpoint, it’s highly resilient,” Cowen-Hirsch said.

“[Most] importantly, it makes the mission successful to be able to have this highly capable system and interoperable with military satellite communication.”
