Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch

TYSONS CORNER, VA, April 7, 2017 — Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch of Inmarsat urges the Defense Department to utilize commercial satellite communications technology to meet its wideband satcom requirements and reserve military-owned satcom platforms only for specialized missions, ExecutiveBiz reported Wednesday.

“Rather than have the mindset that it is milsatcom first and commercial on an as-needed basis, put your core missions, your core capabilities that are known, consistent and essential right there on the backbone of commercial,” Cowen-Hirsch, senior vice president for government strategy and policy at Inmarsat, said in an interview with Defense News published Tuesday.
