US military reliance on SATCOM links has been steadily on the rise as more and more IP intensive applications with high throughput requirements integrated into military applications. Satellite transponder bandwidth has always been at a very high premium, and more efficient use of this scarce asset is highly desirable. Operator around the world (with military or commercial applications) are demanding smarter satellite systems capable of optimized dynamic bandwidth allocation as well cost effective end-user terminals and ground stations based on commercial standards to benefit from global economies of scale. MaXentric is offering a solution that will calumniate in the selection of one of the commercially backed broadband satellite technologies that meets Air Forces requirements in terms of cost, efficiency and performance. This comprehensive study named XTAR Broadband-Satellite Air Force Research (XBAR) will include a thorough analytical and practical evaluation of all currently commercially available broadband satellite technology such as DVB-RCS, IPoS and DOCSIS over Satellite. Based on this study, an end-to-end satellite network system for XTAR satellite is developed. As data throughputs highly depend on actual physical implementation of a satellite broadband technology, XBAR will also include a demonstration of the three most likely technology contenders.
