TYSONS CORNER, VA, July 26, 2017 — Hughes Network Systems will look into the interoperability of commercial satellite transports in efforts to build a wideband communications architecture for government under a contract from the Defense Department, ExecutiveBiz reported Tuesday.

The company said Monday the Wideband Communications Architecture Study aims to help DoD establish resilient, flexible and cost-effective satcom capabilities with military applications operating on their own network using commercial components to drive mission assurance.

“Hughes looks forward to supporting the DoD in helping define innovative and interoperable satellite system architectures for flexible and robust network management for contested environments,” said Rick Lober, vice president and general manager of Hughes’ defense and intelligence systems division.
