SatellitePro talks to Koen Willems, Market Director Government and Defense Satcom at Newtec, and other industry players about Satellite Communications in modern warfare.
"Whenever troops are deployed, they are sent into areas where terrestrial communication is not always available in remote regions, is not secure due to the incumbent telecom operators or is destroyed.
