01 Oct 15. Military communication defines the transmission of information such as orders and instructions among the military personnel across regions within a short span of time with no loss of data. Geographic dispersion of military is one of the reason for the growth in the market for fast operations and communications. The other factors driving the military communications market are replacement of aging equipment and better security solutions for protected, safe, and fast communication. Satellite communication has become a vital platform for all the communication processing. Hence, the components and terminals used in satellite communication are in great demand and will continue to grow in future with the introduction of advanced technologies.
The Military communications market has been segmented on the basis of components into military SATCOM terminal, military radio systems, military security systems, and communication management system; on the basis of communication segmented into airborne communication, air-ground communication, underwater communication, ground based communication, and shipborne communication; and on the basis of application segmented into command and control, routine operations, situational awareness, and other applications.
The global military communications market is estimated grow from USD 23.02bn in 2015 to USD 40.82bn by 2020, at a CAGR of 12.1% from 2015 to 2020.
The notable market players operating in this market are Northrop Grumman, L-3 Communications, BAE Systems, Rockwell Collins, Thales, Airbus Group, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Harris Corporation, General Dynamics, Raytheon, and Alcatel Lucent. This report on military communication provides in-depth analysis of the key players in solutions and services ecosystem with their profiles and recent developments, key issues and opportunities in the market, global adoption trends, and future growth potential.

01 Oct 15. Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced that its RT Logic subsidiary has delivered multiple SpectralNet systems to Inmarsat to support the mission critical Inmarsat L-band TACSAT (L-TAC) mobile satellite communications system. L-TAC delivers a UHF-like satellite capability for use with existing UHF tactical radios to approved government customers at low cost.
SpectralNet’s plug and play capability enables Inmarsat to cost effectively and transparently extend L-TAC services across additional satellites. The Inmarsat ground system uses SpectralNet’s exclusive dynamic frequency conversion to smoothly transition voice and broadband data services for the Europe, Mid-East and Africa region from the Inmarsat-4 F2 (I-4 F2) satellite to Alphasat, Europe’s largest and most sophisticated telecommunications satellite. Following transition of all voice and data services, I-4 F2 will be flown to a new orbital position to create a fourth L-band region, serving the Middle East and Asia. Inmarsat’s L-TAC bridges existing Beyond Line of Site (BLOS) tactical UHF radios through a combination of the Inmarsat L-band satellite networks and SpectralNet.
SpectralNet is the only commercially available product that eliminates the distance constraints of RF transport by digitizing RF signals for transport over IP networks in a way that preserves both frequency and timing characteristics, and then uniquely restores the RF signals at their destination. SpectralNet provides a rich set of additional functionality, such as dynamic frequency conversion, to enable high value uses as demonstrated by Inmarsat.
“Inmarsat’s use of SpectralNet’s frequency translation capability demonstrates its versatility in a wide range of use cases for managing and transporting RF over IP networks,” said Scott Criley, SpectralNet Product Director.
