Military Communication Market - Solutions and Technologies
The paradigm shift from analog hardware to digital software communication products is a leap forward in the military communication market. This shift ensures better utilization of the frequency spectrum.
Security and confidentiality of information and communication is the utmost requirement in military communication. Protection against detection, interception, jamming, spoofing, and scintillation, as well as being safe from nuclear detonations is essential. The increasing volume of IP-based data sent over standard interfaces, such as situational awareness video and remote sensor data derives the need for advanced data network security. No single security method can address all types of vulnerabilities; instead, multiple types of data security techniques are required.
Commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) internet security is another concern, which can be rectified by standard and sophisticated encryption algorithms and techniques .The challenge of keeping up with malicious network threats will only continue to grow so there is a need to secure critical military communications.
Communication interoperability simply refers to the ability of personnel to communicate with staff from other agencies and organizations across different networks and devices. Communication interoperability and collaboration between different agencies, organizations, or departments in defense is a serious challenge. It enhances the ability of the forces from different nations to work effectively together.
The current operations in military communication need to be scalable, so that they can be built upon incrementally as the demand for communication services increases. The adaptable communication ensures that they fit the changing requirements of varied operating environments.
Application of teleconferencing, media delivery, and distance learning are completed via C- and Ku-band services with the benefit of improved bandwidth. This can be fastened by introducing newer ka band services which enable armed forces better operation in line and improve ability to plan, lead and execute complex operations.
There is a long-term roadmap in place to eventually transition all Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Command and Control (C2) missions from Ku to high capacity Ka. Already, some key government aircrafts are being outfitted with Ka technology, and some are starting to be deployed in regions such as North Africa and the Middle East.
Adoption of advanced technologies is a constant challenge to budgets and resources, which often hinders the adoption of advanced communication systems. In this scenario, the defense departments around the world are exploring and inviting new alternatives for reducing the costs. At present, Commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) techniques are the potential choice for the government to reduce the cost constraint. So, the military communication industry is making a shift from purchasing products from commercial providers against defense suppliers.
Multiple communication standards such as 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE increase the complexity within the network and require considerable hardware deployment which ultimately increases the cost. In case of various handheld devices with software-defined radios, multiple connections pose serious problems related to hardware requirement which ultimately increases the weight and size. So managing these network standards is a challenge.
