New Air Reconnaissance Unit Deployed
The P-8A Poseidon aircraft is being used for the first time this week for air reconnaissance as it takes off from Naval Air Station, Jacksonville.
Squadron members have been preparing for the past year for their maiden voyage with the P-8A into active duty.
Communications systems for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions need to provide seamless reliability for mission-critical transmissions.
Satellite network communications, such as Inmarsat SwiftBroadband provide the ideal platform for military and government users, able to deliver simultaneous voice and data communications with optional guaranteed bandwidth for important mission-critical high-traffic services.
The high speed wireless IP data and circuit-switched networks offer streaming data rates of 256kbps with shared capacity IP data rates of up to 432kbps.
