Members of the US Army’s Assured Position, Navigation, and Timing Cross Functional Team (APNT CFT) have begun conducting preliminary experiments exploring the use of commercial broadband networks to support satellite communications (satcoms) from low earth orbit (LEO) constellations.
美国陆军定位,导航和计时跨功能小组(APNT CFT)的成员已经开始进行初步实验,探索使用来自低地球轨道(LEO)星座卫星通信(satcoms)的商业宽带网络支持。
 
The ongoing experimentation with civilian broadband technologies into military LEO communication operations is part of a larger co-operative effort between ANPT CFT and the Network Cross Functional Team (N-CFT), both headquartered under the US Army’s Futures Command, and the command’s advanced technology incubator dubbed ‘Team Ignite’.
正在进行的将民用宽带技术用于军事LEO通信业务的实验是ANPT CFT与网络交叉职能小组(N-CFT)之间更大的合作努力的一部分,该小组的总部都设在美国陆军未来司令部(US Army’s Futures Command)下,并且是该司令部的先进技术孵化器被称为“ Tegn Ignite”。
 
“In both those cases, we are looking to ensure increased bandwidth and resilience in the network,” said John Wilson, deputy to the commanding general US Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC). “One of the elements of that is use of LEO satellites, in order to thicken the network in specific areas” to support army operations worldwide.
“在这两种情况下,我们都希望确保网络中带宽和弹性的提高,”美国陆军总司令部作战能力发展司令部(CCDC)副主任约翰·威尔逊(John Wilson)说。 “其中一个要素是使用LEO卫星,以加强特定区域的网络”,以支持全球范围的陆军行动。
 
 
“There have been a number of agreements established with commercial vendors, and the intent there is to leverage whatever capability – whether it is terrestrial or satellite – is available at any time” to ensure dependable connectivity, he said during a 14 October briefing at the Association of the US Army’s annual symposium.
他在10月14日美国陆军协会年度研讨会上的一次简报会上说:“已经与商业供应商达成了许多协议,其目的是利用任何随时可用的能力——无论是地面还是卫星——来确保可靠的连接。”。
