Hughes to Showcase at Global MilSatCom 2012

Nov 27, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Hughes Network Systems will showcase its satellite-based airborne communications solutions at the 14th annual Global MilSatCom Conference and Exhibition, which will be held at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel and Conference Centre, London through Nov. 29.

According to a release, in his keynote speech, Hughes senior director of its Defense and Intelligence Systems Division Daniel Losada will focus on the importance of innovation in the military airborne market. He will present Thursday, Nov. 29 at 11:50.

"Airborne ISR capabilities are critical to protect national security, keep warfighters safe and assist in emergency response activities," said Losada. "Hughes continues to develop advanced capabilities, many of which provide efficient and cost-effective solutions for our military customers. Our global networks allow us to work at home and in theater, providing continuous coverage for our customers.

"Hughes is especially strong in the area of airborne communications. We have integrated with a number of antenna systems developers, enabling deployment of high-throughput SATCOM systems across a range of manned and unmanned airborne platforms. We have also undertaken a number of waveform implementations for more challenging applications such as rotary wing. Other specialized waveforms have been developed to meet the need for ultra-small apertures. As a result, less power and decreased weight have enabled bandwidth efficient, interoperable tactical systems to be deployed in theater." Hughes Network Systems is a provider of satellite broadband.

Hughes is a subsidiary of EchoStar Corp., a provider of satellite operations and digital TV solutions.
