XTAR to Participate in Military Mobility Panel at SATELLITE 2015

XTAR vice president of engineering Jim Chambers will join the Government Mobility Solutions: Offering Flexibility in an Uncertain World panel on Wednesday, March 18 at 10:15 a.m. in room 207A at the upcoming SATELLITE 2015 Government & Military Forum in Washington, D.C. The panel, which is co-presented by the Satellite Industry Association and MSUA, will focus on growing government customers’ needs for mobility solutions in an era of constrained budgets. Flexibility to make use of either government or commercial capacity depending on availability and application requirements is becoming increasingly important across the aeronautical, maritime, and land segments, and has driven innovation in terminals. This panel will discuss future military requirements for mobility, especially in the post-drawdown environment, and the impact these requirements have on the business and technology plans of equipment manufacturers, service providers and satellite operators.
