Serving the warfighter with better technology
We’re answering commander and warfighter needs for critical, accurate, timely intelligence information in order to make fast, effective decisions in the fog of war. We’re proud to share these stories here.
At a NATO disaster-preparation exercise in Serbia in October, Viasat demonstrated how its MMT nomadic terminal can establish near-instant communications when terrestrial networks are disabled or overloaded.
New handheld radio technology from Viasat enables much better communication between troops on the ground and support aircraft above. For close air support, the new technology is tough to beat, and troops are eager to use it.
The potential benefits of AI and machine learning applications for military forces are nearly endless, but they need access to both a modernized end-to-end satellite communications network and line of sight technologies.
The private sector drives the innovation the military needs.
By thoroughly understanding our customers’ most urgent needs, Viasat can proactively apply cutting-edge technologies to create innovative solutions that provide warfighters with new and truly remarkable operational capabilities.
A look at how Viasat works with our customers to determine real needs and works to ensure new technology is in the field as soon as possible.
Viasat's acquisition of Horsebridge Defence and Security adds important relationships and technology in the UK defense market.
The government's decision to fund outmoded satellites in favor of using better, more modern options available commercially is the wrong decision in a time of escalating threats.
For Department of Defense, unleashing commercial innovation is the quickest, best way to harness new technologies
Speaking at a recent conference, Viasat's Ken Peterman made the case for enhancing the military's satellite communications capabilities faster and more economically with private-sector technologies.
Viasat’s continually evolving network supports best-in-class satellite communications system technology, linking critical government users with unprecedented performance, security, and value.
