SES Government Solutions (SES GS) will demonstrate its Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite communication system at the Modern Day Marine Expo at Marine Corps Base Quantico. The solutions can connect defense missions in most remote areas with no terrestrial infrastructure, adapting to a broad range of scenarios. The ongoing demonstrations will take place from 19 to 21 September.
The satellite-enabled communications solution managed by SES GS is the first mobile platform to offer collaborative communications technologies over multiple frequencies, including X-band, military Ka-, commercial C-, Ku- and Ka- bands. The system on display can access GEO wide beams and high throughput narrow beams, or deliver fiber-like MEO connectivity services. This integrated satellite-enabled solution hosts advanced features and can provide a mobile cell tower to deliver 3G and 4G/LTE connectivity.
The system is designed to enable resilient communications anywhere, and to support applications such as High Definition video surveillance, large file transfers, high-speed broadband, voice over IP and mobile backhaul in locations where ground infrastructure is non-existent or destroyed.
“SES GS GEO and MEO services allow government maritime customers to avail themselves of all the benefits of a highly-reliable, expeditionary, flexible and scalable solution to accomplish their missions with speed and accuracy from ship to shore, and out to the tactical edge,” said Pete Hoene, President & CEO of SES GS.
