Boeing Commercial Satellite Services (BCSS) has over 10 years of experience providing communications solutions to unmanned systems. We specifically designed our systems to fully accommodate the unmanned system community. We developed our next generation SATCOM technology with specific capabilities to meet unmanned system user requirements for the next 15 years and beyond. Our satellites provide unrivaled bandwidth and power to small, disadvantaged terminals. This paradigm-breaking power is changing the game by opening the door to the application of advanced sensor technologies on remote systems.
BCSS provides worldwide and ubiquitous SATCOM coverage with a single contract. Since our broadband transponders are over 10 times the size of other commercially-available transponders, a single hub ground terminal pointed at our satellite supports dozens of unmanned system full motion video or imagery missions instead of just a few. This greatly reduces the requirement for forward-deployed user SATCOM and the need for multiple contracts. Additionally, choose to utilize our teleports, and we can deliver the data to your network so that you do not have to deploy communications architecture forward. This saves life cycle cost and increases expeditionary flexibility and portability. For Special Operations or other sensitive unmanned system operations, we are the only non-government system that offers ‘secure commanding’. Secure commanding provides the user with ability to covertly steer the SATCOM to where it is needed to follow the missions. Options for Jam resistance can be added to allow for unmanned operations in denied SATCOM environments.
BCSS has listened to the unmanned system community and we have responded. From High-Altitude Long-Endurance (HALE) unmanned aircraft to Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV)s, we’ve got you covered.
