The network will be used to provide video surveillance as well as command and control applications in order to secure various national assets in remote and difficult to reach locations. Sensors backhauled by the VSATs include fixed, quick deploy and mobile sources, such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The network will operate in a multi-star configuration, based on a hub in a central location and NetEdge Gateways in various geographically distributed sites.
