Inmarsat’s Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch: DoD May Focus on Resilient Satcom Under National Defense Strategy

Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch

TYSONS CORNER, VA, May 21, 2018 — Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch, senior vice president for government strategy and policy at Inmarsat‘s government business, has said the National Defense Strategy serves to underscore efforts to increase U.S. capability for space-based threat awareness and space asset protection, ExecutiveBiz reported May 10.

Cowen-Hirsch told C4ISRNet in a report published May 9 that the Defense Department‘s strategy signals military procurement potentially geared toward resiliency in satellite communications — with focus on areas such as wideband communications, network diversification, overhead persistent infrared and augmentation for GPS — as adversaries increasingly develop counterspace technologies.
