A vital component for any military organization is the ability to communicate, share information and provide support for large, mobile groups of personnel anytime, anywhere. COTM satellite technology with mission-critical connectivity is increasingly necessary for the military when they need to be mobile.
Recent COTM technology advances are bringing even greater advantages to the military. Soldiers can deploy a wireless broadband network on a moving ground vehicle, deep water fleet, military aircraft and even on an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Portable systems fit inside a soldier’s rucksack, are engineered to withstand harsher environments and can be activated at a moment’s notice.
COTM systems traditionally were deployed in larger vehicles; however, significant advancements in satellite communications have brought the technology to the warfighter. New satellite router boards that are half the size of current products enable smaller, lighter-weight and lower-power portable terminals, providing COTM connectivity to on-the-foot warfighters.
This new development in portable technology delivers several critical advantages. Soldiers can receive battlefield imagery that identifies potential threats, transmit situational video to base, receive command and control information, and even transmit X-rays and imagery of a wounded soldier to doctors who can interpret the injury and provide guidance on proper treatment.
With a dynamic COTM solution, a vehicle in the field becomes “broadband-enabled,” capable of supporting Internet, voice, data and video services. Satellite routers can fit in the rear of a vehicle. A low-profile antenna installs on top, and inside the cabin, users benefit from wireless connectivity on laptop computers and Voice over Internet Protocol phones.
COTM helps the warfighter achieve instant access to information in a mobile environment on the ground, at sea or in the air.
COTM is one of the fastest growing areas for satellite communications.
