Teri Takai Speaks on DoD’s Wireless Spectrum Dependence

Teri TakaiTeri Takai, Defense Department chief information officer, said Tuesday the department’s dependence on wireless spectrum touches all aspects of its operations, the American Forces Press Service reported Tuesday.

Claudette Roulo writes that Takai told a Washington Post forum that military platforms have moved beyond wireless voice and data transmission and into video communication and other technologies.

Takai gave U.S. bases as an example as they heavily use spectrum so that they can connect with overseas American soldiers in need of training.

“We do 80 percent of our training here,” Takai said.

“The safety of our men and women overseas is really based on their… ability to train,” she added.

She suggested spectrum sharing that is dictated by geography, demographics or time of day as methods to maintain system reliability, according to AFPS.
