Viasat to Upgrade NATO UHF Satellite Communications Control Stations to Next-Generation Integrated Waveform
Viasat’s VISION Platform to Provide NATO Forces with Greater Voice/Data User Capacity, Interoperability and Flexibility at the Battlefield’s Tactical Edge
As part of this award,
The Viasat VISION platform gives network operators real-time capabilities to reconfigure UHF satellite networks to meet new mission profiles on-the-fly. By enabling interoperability between DAMA and IW platforms,
“Networked forces need to be able to receive and execute orders dynamically in the fog of war. With the Viasat VISION platform, we can use our UHF space segment more efficiently as it more than doubles our existing UHF user access,” said
The Viasat VISION platform provides a single user-friendly network management interface for legacy DAMA and IW services, inclusive of the ability to locally or remotely manage and control ground station networks, monitor status and system performance, track event/alarm management situations and add/remove services when missions change.
“Frontline warfighters need assured, reliable real-time communications in order to safely execute their missions, especially at the tactical edge,” said
