Satellite rocket with space communication technology launching into the air

Advancing the space domain for over 34 years

Built for breakthroughs & executing the space enterprise vision

Whether under threat, 在移动中, or at operational locations around the globe, joint forces operating in multi-domain environments require secure, 可靠的, ubiquitous connectivity, especially across space communication technology. Viasat provides critical, satellite communications for mobile forces, enables control of remote sensors, transmits real-time battlefield intelligence, and ties sensors to shooters.

Resilient networks and situational awareness to securely connect the warfighter

The Viasat Hybrid Adaptive Network (HAN) is a revolutionary step forward in extending, 改善, and securing space communications. By layering together many space communications systems of various types into a global, multi-layered network of networks, the HAN allows automated, intelligent routing and re-routing of warfighter communications across 地理, MEO, 利奥, and other network layers.

  • Layered resilience supporting the combat cloud
  • Communication network agility for multi-domain operations
  • 企业 architecture for information dominance

Key Hybrid Adaptive Network enablers

Multi-Mode User Terminals

灵活的, interoperable user terminals that can operate over multiple radio frequency bands and support multiple network protocols/waveforms. Software defined terminals that can switch between multiple different networks.

Hybrid Adaptive Network Management

Monitor individual users’ mission demands and available resources to intelligently assign users to the network that best delivers required effects. Warfighter parameters drive the HAN manager to select the “best available network” based on user demands, 地理位置, 经济学, 和行动节奏.

Open Standard Network Interface

Specifies the structure of information that can be exchanged between the Hybrid Adaptive Network Manager and component networks. A Translation Agent at the software layer translates the networks’ native control/status facilities into the network interface defined format.

Innovation opportunities

Pilot a Hybrid Adaptive Network scalable architecture through limited deployment of an 企业 Management System, translation agent and Standardized Interface. 

The HAN in Action
