Satellite Communication for Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR)

Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR)programmes are a key part of Government and Defense operations. MWR networks are designed to support remotely deployed defense personnel, civilian employees, ship crews and their families.

Satellite communication  plays an important role in MWR programmes due to the fact that government and defense operations are mostly located in remote locations or in areas suffering from man-made or natural disasters with no terrestrial connectivity.

The amount of data, voice and video exchanged in MWR networks has grown substantially, along with the wide number of leisure and support services that are being offered.

Government and defense customers continuously seek new technologies to drive down bandwidth requirements and are looking for ways to lower satellite bandwidth costs. Through the flexible and scalable Newtec Dialog® Platform and efficient satellite communication technology such as Newtec’s FlexACM®, Cross-Layer-Optimization™, Mx-DMA® and datacasting solutions this objective can be achieved in no time.
