Abstract : MILSATCOM systems consist of three primary segments: earth terminal (airborne, ground, sea) segment, sp segment, and control segment. MILSATCOM systems are vital to Department of Defense as they satisfy certain essential communications connectivity needs more effectively than other media. The key advantages of MILSATCOM systems are broad geographical coverage, mobility, survivability, and flexibility. The term MILSATCOM systems" includes those systems owned or leased and operated by the Department of Defense and those commercial satellite communications (SATCOM) services used by Department of Defense. This MOP provides guidance with respect to operational user connectivity requirements, system access, system use for DOD-operated systems. User requirements will be integrated with commercial SATCOM service requirements in the Integrated SATCOM Data Base (ISDB) to support SATCOM architect development.
