Software Defined Capabilities, MILSATCOM Capacity and Commercial Opportunity
Brad Grady, Senior Analyst, Northern Sky Research
Anything software defined is really a hot topic, and for a lot of reasons, as it brings flexibility into the equation. There are now entirely flexible satellite architectures and infrastructures powered by software that can redefine networks on the fly. Listen to Brad Grady discuss the MILSATCOM market, its growth potential and the technology (like software defined) supporting it. Brad talks about the U.S. government being a significant purchaser of satellite capacity and services and looking to take advantage of software defined capabilities. Brad also discusses LEO mega constellations, why the addition of more MILSATCOM capacity probably won't affect the commercial market and the possibility of creating a flexible ground infrastructure that doesn't really care what data transport path is being offered.
