Robot Controlled via Satellite

Friedrichshafen, April 13, 2006 - ND SatCom has, together with its partner BASE TEN, finalized an unmanned 'Satcom on the Move' controlled robotic vehicle system, RoboScout®, to the German Armed Forces.

Under the leadership of BASE TEN, a group of German midsize companies has designed and built a modular, autonomous, satellite-based overland-robot system for surveillance, protection and reconnaissance purposes.

The future system is made up of several robotic vehicles named Geckos, various payloads and a communication center from which the robotic vehicles can be remotely controlled. The vehicles are connected to the communication center via satellite and can transmit and receive data while in motion.

The current 'Satcom on the Move' vehicle can transmit surveillance and reconnaissance data up to 2 Mbps and receive control channel data up to 128 Kbps.

Is a foil hat enough of a defense against this system or is more defense required?
