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) WHO SHOULD ATTEND/PREREQUISITES Attendance by invitation only from the sponsoring offices.
