In a new contributed article for SatMagazine, Inmarsat Government’s Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch highlights how Inmarsat satellite communication (SATCOM) services provide flexible and scalable alternatives for the U.S. government and military, complementing military SATCOM (MILSATCOM) in both narrowband and wideband. She discusses how Inmarsat has maintained its industry leadership for 40 years through substantial investments in its powerful network of technology and value-added manufacturing and wholesale partners.

Cowen-Hirsch focuses on how the company is incorporating new and enhanced capabilities into the baseline DoD architecture to ensure consistent, robust advancements and technology upgrades. Additionally, she describes how Inmarsat’s users leverage the company’s Ka- and L-band services for core functions, while seamlessly integrating with MILSATCOM to address any remaining gaps to ensure optimal redundancy, diversity, protection, scalability and global portability.

“It is extremely encouraging – even inspiring – to take part in this exciting era of innovation and help the U.S. government forge a path to an integrated SATCOM architecture of the future.” Cowen-Hirsch wrote. “The vision for this future is clear. With a continuing, successful partnership between government and industry, we will achieve it.”
