Facing resilient global threats, the maritime forces of the United States Navy, Marine Corps, Military Sealift Command (MSC), and Coast Guard are planning larger, more connected fleets to empower next-generation missions.
The U.S. Navy currently has a fleet of 276 active ships, yet acknowledges that even the proposed 355-ship fleet using current technologies is not sufficient to maintain superiority at sea in a world where a growing number of adversaries are modernizing their maritime arsenals at a frenetic pace.
While the U.S. Navy pursues this larger, smarter fleet over the next decade, it is simultaneously accelerating system upgrades aboard existing ships, including connectivity and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities, enabling commanders and sailors, with lives on the line, to make better, more informed decisions.
In this white paper, SES Space and Defense looks at the impact this larger, more advanced fleet will have on government maritime networks and satellite requirements, and discusses the benefits that next-generation MEO and HTS constellations can deliver to end-users at sea.
