Digital video has become a ubiquitous communications tool. In recent years, great advances have been made in the capture and display of ultra-high definition (UHD) video. Delivering UHD video over networks, however, requires a high-throughput connection that is not always present, especially in wireless networks. The U.S. Navy has established a need for video services that can distribute high-quality video from within the fleet to anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice. This requires a high-throughput satellite communications system that links ship-based assets with each other, as well as with land-based assets. This thesis evaluates a satellite communications solution that can be used to deliver UHD video to customers during at-sea periods for a wide variety of use cases and applications. A mobile video content management server was evaluated and then coupled with a high-throughput satellite communications solution to meet public affairs digital video content demands. Our evaluation of the O3b Network’s transportable tracking fly away antenna system reveals that it can adequately handle the network demand of UHD video content transmission.
