The presentation Koen Willems, Strategic Marketing Manager Government and IP Trunking at Newtec, and David Beering, owner of Intelligent Designs LLC, presented at MilSatCom 2012.

They tackled the question how to increase efficiency across satellites for beyond line of sight ISR operations and elaborated on the following topics:

- ISR airborne platforms
- Increasing data rates through video and data in ISR applications
- Budget cuts in government and the defence market
- Increasing efficiency across satellites
- Inclined orbit satellites

  • 16. Airborne ISR Best Practice Experience through Practice Use Case ISR•  Challenges –  Small Airframes –  High data rate requirement – aircraft are data producers, not data consumers –  Small amount of rack space and weight available to accommodate electronics and antenna (SWAP extremely limited) –  Rapid deployment timeline compressed amount of time available for development, integration, and testing –  Certification requirements •  Certification for testing in the Continental US •  Certification for operational use © Newtec Cy nv – All Rights Reserved. Newtec Proprietary Information 16
  • 17. Airborne ISR Best Practice Experience through Practice Use Case ISR•  Functional Requirements –  System must be able to support data rates of at least 10 Mbps from the aircraft to the ground via satellite –  Multiple aircraft must be able to be supported simultaneously –  System must be able to support data rates of at least 2 Mbps from the ground back to the aircraft –  All data interfaces must be compatible with Internet Protocol –  All Intermediate Frequency (IF) interfaces must be commercial L-Band –  External hardware (antenna, radome) must be able to be fitted on multiple types of aircraft –  Operator interface must be simple enough to be operated by personnel who are not satellite experts © Newtec Cy nv – All Rights Reserved. Newtec Proprietary Information 17
  • 18. Airborne ISR Best Practice Experience through Practice Use Case ISR•  Demonstrated Performance & Results –  During testing and operation, the system has been successfully operated on the following spacecraft •  Skynet 5A •  Skynet 5C •  Skynet 4E •  XTAR-EUR •  XTAR-LANT –  Data rates from the aircraft to the ground terminal in excess of 10 Mbps have been demonstrated on each satellite –  Data rates from the ground terminal to the aircraft have been demonstrated on each satellite –  Use of Adaptive Coding & Modulation (ACM) on Newtec EL470 modems provides, on average a 30-50% increase in usable data rate by converting extra link margin to usable data rate –  The system is currently operational, supporting multiple aircraft © Newtec Cy nv – All Rights Reserved.
