CHRA Course Manager:


The LandWarNet Commercial Satellite Communications (SATCOM) Work Group is held in
conjunction with LandWarNet 2011 Pre-Conference Army-Sponsored Meetings, in collaboration with
the Satellite Industry Association and Program Manager Warfighter Information Network-Tactical
(PM WIN-T), Program Executive Office - Command, Control and Communications Tactical (PEO
C3T). Attendees are provided functional forums for debating and addressing Army Commercial
SATCOM challenges with DoD and industry partners. Meeting agenda as follows:

0730 – 0800 Morning Refreshments and Morning Break

0800 - 0815   Welcome (SIA and PM-WIN-T)

0815 - 0845   Opening Remarks (Speaker TBD)
0845 - 1015   Mobility Demands: An Operational View of Technology vs. Requirements

How are current Army requirements for SATCOM terminals and mobile capabilities evolving? How
is the Army balancing the need for low signature and high performance, in a budget-constrained
environment? The panel will address how SATCOM communications on the move and at the halt,
as well as the airborne layer of ISR, augment the operational capabilities of Army forces. In
conjunction with terminals, various modems & waveforms must be discussed as these are
important factors within the “antenna equation”.

1030 - 1145   SATCOM Support for Situational Awareness: Standards and Requirements

What new SATCOM capabilities are emerging to support situational awareness requirements? How
is SATCOM supporting mission requirements such as asset tracking, blue-force tracking, and
airborne ISR? What are the impacts of LandISRNet, Relevant ISR to the Edge (RITE), and Army
Force Generation (ARFORGEN) on SATCOM? How are network management and interference
detection systems evolving to meet these requirements? What challenges do joint and multinational
forces present in integrating diverse systems?
1145 - 1345   Lunch (Keynote Speaker TBD)

1345 - 1515   Field Perspectives

Military commanders discuss crucial needs for SATCOM technology and policy to support effective
SATCOM deployment in the field. What has the Army learned in recent combat operations in
Operation New Dawn and Operation Enduring Freedom? What are the requirements across the
range of future military operations? How can SATCOM most effectively support Army forces
engaged in crisis response or limited contingency operations?

1530 – 1645 Lessons Learned for the Way Ahead

How can recent experiences in fielding SATCOM systems inform Army planning? The panel will
explore how best to merge military satellite capabilities with current and future commercial
capabilities, terminal synchronization, information assurance, and right-sizing and bridging myriad
waveforms to provide effective and ready Army communications.

1645 - 1700   Closing Remarks (SIA and PM-WIN-T)
