Program Provides Access to High-Capacity Satellite-Enabled Networks

“We are excited to be working with Viasat to provide an affordable, resilient communications capability to our DoD and international coalition partners,” said Carl D’Alessandro, president of AQYR Technologies, Inc.

AQYR Technologies, Inc., a New Hampshire based manufacturer of rugged, portable, tactical satellite communications (SATCOM) terminals, announced it will participate in Viasat’s government-focused terminal modification kit program, which will enable AQYR’s terminals to interoperate with Viasat’s current and next-generation high-capacity SATCOM networks, including hybrid, multi-network architectures. Hybrid, multi-network SATCOM architectures will allow military users to easily roam among commercial and purpose-built defense satellite networks.

Enabling interoperability between AQYR’s terminals and Viasat’s SATCOM networks provides assurance to U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and international coalition forces that their current inventory of SATCOM terminals will be able to access Viasat’s next-generation, high-capacity satellite networks by simple updates to existing terminals without the need to purchase new equipment.

“We welcome companies like AQYR, who have committed to join us in creating a path to simplify technology logistics and lower total cost of ownership in relation to defense SATCOM networks,” said Ken Peterman, president, Government Systems, Viasat. “Our terminal modification kit will help U.S. DoD and international military forces quickly implement an end-to-end hybrid architecture to support their diverse mission sets while using interoperable terminals on the best available SATCOM networks.”

Hybrid networks can maximize subscriber capabilities and resilience by providing simultaneous access to multiple networks. These networks may span multiple orbital regimes, operate over multiple frequency bands, provide independent terrestrial infrastructure and feature different network management and cyber defense capabilities, providing inherent diversity and removing single points of failure and/or attack. Due to load balancing, different service level agreements, network congestion, weather and other attributes, the user population of hybrid networks will be spread across multiple transport networks. This will make it difficult for an adversary to target their communications capabilities for collection, exploitation or denial.
