The distributed nature of operations military forces will likely be engaged in in the future requires flexible, resilient, and robust communications where units will be disaggregated and need to talk over greater distances.

The US Army is asking industry to help develop use cases for how it could use satellite communications (SATCOM) for forces to talk beyond line of sight.

Last year, the Army released addressed the industry to help it better understand what types of services certain providers could offer and for how much. The 20 responses the Army received from industry ranged widely, from traditional defense companies to commercial providers with little experience with the military, according to c4isrnet.com.

This demonstrates the growing tendency of industry organizations to join forces in supporting innovation and the digital transformation of space, satellite and related network technologies.
