Happy Holidays and 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards

Happy holidays from everyone at Intelsat General Corporation! We hope your holiday season is a joyous and peaceful one.

We’ve assembled below the 2014 stories judged most popular by our readers:

In February we took a detailed look at the reasons why Ku-band makes the most sense for the DoD.

Later that month, we published a definition of high-throughput satellite (HTS) systems, which promise to deliver a revolutionary improvement in satellite bandwidth.

In March we looked at when the DoD compares the costs of commercial vs. government SATCOM, it’s often apples and oranges.

Finally, this summer our president Kay Sears published an appreciation of the G-26 spacecraft at the end of its operational life. This piece struck a chord with professionals throughout the industry and underscored the criticality of satellite connectivity.

Our deepest thanks go out to all members of America’s military and those who support them, whose service often separates them from loved ones this time of year. We honor your sacrifice, and hope that satellite technology allows you some kind of contact over the holiday season.

The SatCom Frontier editorial team will be on hiatus until Tuesday, January 6th. Thank you for sharing 2014 with us, and we hope to see you in 2015.
