Today's fleet logistics operators maintain responsibility for Naval Force sustainment. Without vital data and useful information systems, substantive logistics improvements are difficult to realize. Exploitation of current satellite technology provides unique opportunities for improvements in data-transfer capacity to fleet units. As private industry takes the lead in technological development, the military must closely monitor commercial space- based communications systems. This research analyzed five commercial satellite systems that possess various capabilities, and provides an overview to distinguish their operational characteristics. Information systems must also be developed using an appropriate program management structure, which offers guidance and support. Conclusions are presented for SALTS program management and recommendations are made for several satellite systems that may meet the Navy's requirements
