The U.S. Southern Command (Southcom) has embarked on an ambitious international CubeSat program, and turned to the Naval Postgraduate School for help. The NPS Distributed Information Systems and Experimentation (DISE) research group along with the university’s Space Systems Academic Group (SSAG) teamed up to help the combatant command evaluate how low-cost space communications capabilities can support information sharing and tactical communication across the remote and densely-forested areas common to the Southcom area of operations.
