Tactical Communications (TacCom)

Hughes delivers flexible, secure, and resilient tactical communications to support the warfighter in the most remote and hard-to-connect places around the world. Quickly deployable and portable satellite communications solutions include manpack and flyaway terminals to connect squads to command, and cellular bubbles to connect entire field hospitals or pop-up bases for short or long-term deployments.


Cellular Connectivity

Hughes satellite-powered Wi-Fi On-Demand capability can be added to any of our specialized terminals to create a turnkey tactical network solution designed to support requirements for broadband systems that must operate independently without reliance on local infrastructure.

With ruggedized system hardware suitable for nearly any environment and a 200+ meter coverage radius, Hughes has transformed its low-cost commercial solution to support the rigorous tactical communication demands of global military operations. Cellular LTE may also be added for a 1 mile+ coverage radius.

Specialized Terminals


Wherever the mission takes you, Hughes has a solution to keep service members connected. Our durable flyaway and manpack terminals make communications possible anywhere you can see the sky on an ad hoc or longer term basis, depending on the mission needs. Lightweight and transportable, these terminals can be carried or trucked, then set up in a matter of minutes for near-instant connectivity.
