A group of industry partners organized by Lepton Global Solutions demonstrated the latest in tactical Satellite Communications equipment and services at two Marine Corps events on April 25th and 26th. On Tuesday, April 25th, equipment demonstrations were conducted at the MCAGCC Twentynine Palms and on Wednesday, April 26th at MCAS Camp Pendleton.
Live equipment demonstrations included Paradigm’s SWARM45 Ka-band terminal, Tampa Microwave manpack antenna, and Huckworthy Ltd’s next generation LTE solution. Lepton and Boeing Commercial Satellite Services (BCSS) provided the network services for these live demos on Lepton’s Ku-band network and the GlobalXpress® Ka-band network. Huckworthy’s LTE customized system placed in the surrounding area created a Wi-Fi bubble to showcase that the communication between the parties could be possible using both Ku- and Ka-band frequencies simultaneously.
The Marine Corp’s Tactical & Tech Days, the traveling expo organized by NCSI, presents an opportunity for service members and civilians to see the latest in emerging technologies, network with industry experts, and share ideas and goals. In addition to satellite communications, the technologies on display varied from Drones and Unmanned technology to Cyber Security and C4ISR solutions.
