Crawford To Manage US Military Digital Video Imagery Distribution System

by Staff Writers
Atlanta GA (SPX) Jul 09, 2008
Crawford Communications has announced a long-term agreement to provide content aggregation, media relations, Internet and satellite services for the U.S. military's Digital Video and Imagery Distribution System (DVIDS). Its mission is to provide a reliable connection between the global media and the military.

Crawford Satellite Services, a service area of Crawford Communications, Inc. and one of the largest broadcast facilities in the Southeast, has been awarded a multi-year sub-contract that offers full-time satellite space segment to Arrowhead Global Solutions.

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of CapRock Communications, Arrowhead focuses on delivering end-to-end managed communications solutions to federal government customers around the world. With Crawford as its sub-contractor, Arrowhead was selected by DISA (Defense Information Systems Agency) to support U.S. DoD (Department of Defense) efforts.

Through this agreement, the U.S. Army secured 39 MHz (megahertz) of satellite capacity for its DVIDS (Digital Video and Imagery Distribution System) project, a 24/7 operation that provides a reliable connection between the media and the military.
