Download PDF

SATCOM systems come with a unique set of design challenges given their size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) requirements; deployment in harsh environments; and need to scale in the future. To satisfy these, Hughes Defense and Intelligence Systems partnered with Kontron on the design of the HM200 ruggedized mobile SATCOM modem.

This case study will teach defense system engineers:

  • About the unique challenges of designing SATCOM systems for multiple mobile military platforms
  • How COM Express-based mission computers can meet these challenges while maintaining DoD procurement
  • About features of Intel® Core™ i7 processors that will keep the HM200 viable for the long haul
