Ahead of the Conference in November, SAE Media Group caught up with Lieutenant Commander Paul Bridgers, NATO HQ Command, Control and Consultation Staff Officer and SATCOM Capability Team Secretary from NATO to discuss the challenges and breakthroughs within the MilSatCom field. Below is what he had to say:
What are the main challenges that you face when providing an effective SATCOM capability?
"As the space domain continues to grow in importance, more and more systems are competing for limited radio frequency spectrum. We need novel technical solutions and the political will to coordinate intelligent spectrum usage across all Communities of Interest."
At GMSC, one of our aims is to gather allied partners to discuss ways for better partnership and collaboration. From your experience, how can international collaboration in SATCOM be improved?
"I observed a significant slowdown in collaboration during the pandemic as meetings shifted from in person to virtual. It is easy to get lost in the digital shuffle when unable to meet in person. This challenge is being overcome as the world shifts back towards in person events. I strongly believe that events like MILSATCOM and other face-to-face meetings and events are critically important. Through these events partnerships can be established leading to collaborative efforts that were likely not about happen without these events."
