Hi all,

I'm in a government agency ( communications) that uses L3 communication modems and up and downconverters in conjunction with other satellite equipment. Their equipment is extremely reliable for long haul comms for long time frames (for us) sitting in one place for 365 days. Not sure how much their satellite comms make up their biz. but they seem to have a pretty long contract with DoD.

However, we are seeing more and more 'user owned and operated' equipment popping up, mainly because we aren't doing our job properly and taking care of the 'customer', they are going to more satellite dishes like SweDish. SweDish is a Swedish company (get it) that manufactures and services their own line of communication gear. I read they used them down in Iraq. You don't need a 'commo guy' trained for years to operate it, it takes a day or so playing around with it to do it.

I'm sure this is just one aspect of L3's biz, but I figured I'd share my (limited) user knowledge.
