OffComm News - - DIARY DATES -

Global satel­lite so­lu­tions provider SES Gov­ern­ment So­lu­tions ( SES GS), a sub­sidiary of SES, has been awarded a con­tract to pro­vide satel­lite ca­pac­ity to support the US Army Warfighter In­for­ma­tion Net­work- Tac­ti­cal ( WIN- T). This net­work keeps sol­diers con­nected to each other on the move – as well as to the company net­work.

This is a five year con­tract awarded via De­fense In­for­ma­tion Sys­tems Agency, as a sub­con­trac­tor to small business company, AIS En­gi­neer­ing, Inc. Un­der the agree­ment SES satel­lite ca­pac­ity will pro­vide support for US Army re­search and de­vel­op­ment ac­tiv­i­ties as well for test­ing new ap­pli­ca­tions for mo­bile mis­sions. Else­where, in Afghanistan, In­tel­sat Gen­eral has ex­tended its com­mit­ment to pro­vide satel­lite ca­pac­ity to forces sta­tioned in the re­gion. For the third year, In­tel­sat Gen­eral is sup­ply­ing satel­lite ser­vices to DRS Tech­nolo­gies, a di­vi­sion of Fin­mec­ca­nica, in support of US Cen­tral Com­mand re­quire­ments in Afghanistan. The ser­vice utilises 180 MHz of Ku- band ca­pac­ity on an In­tel­sat 9 se­ries satel­lite over south­west Asia.
