Why is the project important?
The goal of the People’s satellite communication project was to equip the 79th Airborne Brigade with Thuraya XT satellite communication devices and starter kits as quickly as possible. The devices were distributed among combat units and the question about enciphering of everyday intercommunication of battalions, squadrons and platoons arose.
Because satellite calls are very expensive, they are made only in emergencies, they are also vulnerable to being intercepted. That’s why for regular needs the optimum alternative is digital radio communication, since surveillance of the digital airwaves demand a lot of effort.
As we know from the experience of fighting in the East, protected and reliable communication between our military has no less significance than armor or a helmet.
