A history of airborne technology innovations for military aircraft and service members

Viasat is driven by helping warfighters stay safe and successful on their missions. Building on fifteen years of outfitting aircraft with innovative airborne terminals and providing outsanding service, Viasat delivers technology that amplifies solutions, 自动化的任务, 提高了效率. Over one-third of Viasat employees are veterans, instilling a strong sense of pride in ensuring our technology creates a positive impact for all warfighters. 创新包括:

  • 动态视频编码(DVE)
  • Internet Protocol Television (IPTV)
  • Viasat视频流
  • Viasat network support centers: Network Operations Center, 安全运营中心, 及政府护理中心



ISR missions often require aircraft to travel long legs from base to objective. As the aircraft traverse higher data rate contour rings within the satellite footprint, they are unable to adjust sensor data rate automatically. 认识到这种局限性, Viasat developed Dynamic Video Encoding (DVE), an application that optimizes ISR data feeds based on satellite capability, and if need be allows for configuration to occur across security boundaries. DVE使:

  • Automatically increase or decrease video data throughput as the bandwidth changes to optimize output
  • Maximize the efficient usage of the bandwidth you’re already paying for
  • Allows dynamic configurations changes across security boundaries

与Viasat连接, senior leaders have access to IPTV, an easy to operate content source to increase situational awareness while in the sky. With tailored channels and dedicated support, IPTV is a flexible airborne solution to keep principals in the air connected to happenings on the ground. IPTV operates over an already installed Viasat 卫星通信 terminal eliminating the need for an additional receive-only antenna. IPTV允许:

  • Access to live news without relying on streaming 服务
  • 卫星通信 TV viewing without impacting mission-critical, bandwidth-intensive communications
  • Combining TV with data connections - one terminal for C2 communications and situational awareness
