Abstract
Current methods of software deployment for shipboard computing assets are slow and exceedingly expensive. In the past, the lack of low-cost, global, high-bandwidth digital communications mandated the manual transportation of physical media to individual ships. With the emergence of the Global Broadcast Service (GBS), there is an opportunity to realize substantial cost savings by automating the software-distribution process while significantly reducing deployment time. This proposal suggests a secure, efficient system for end-to-end software distribution between a land-based software support agency and shipboard computing assets using GBS; this system is known as the satellite IP-based high-bandwidth software distribution system (SIPHON).
