Inmarsat Government’s Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch: Terminals a Key Area for DoD Wideband Satcom Opportunities

Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch

TYSONS CORNER, VA, July 9, 2018 — Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch, senior vice president of government strategy and policy for Inmarsat Government, has noted that terminals are a key element in the findings of the Defense Department‘s analysis of alternatives on wideband satellite communications, ExecutiveBiz reported June 29.

Space News reported June 28 that DoD found opportunities for increased use of commercial satcom capabilities to boost capacity as most military terminals were deemed incompatible with modern platforms.

Hirsch, who noted in the report that the push for commercial services was encouraging, indicated that the opportunity surrounding modular terminals instead of vertically integrated systems builds on the need for an integrated satcom architecture.
