DataPath Wins Suppport Contract For US CENTCOM SatComm Hubs

by Staff Writers
Duluth GA (SPX) Sep 02, 2008
DataPath has been awarded $1.9 million to continue providing field services for DataPath Deployable Ku Band Earth Terminals (DKETs) at a key communications hub in Iraq.

The DKET systems were built and installed by DataPath and are used by the U.S. military as critical satellite communications (SATCOM) hubs that deliver high-bandwidth capabilities on the battlefield. DataPath technical experts have been based onsite to ensure optimum performance of the systems since they were installed in March 2005.

"DataPath's onsite technical support services continue to be a differentiator in our core U.S. Department of Defense market," said Steve Lindeman, vice president of Business Operations at DataPath. "Our people are deployed in the thick of things to make sure vital U.S. military communications operate reliably."

DataPath has more than 200 personnel supporting the U.S. military in 60 locations and nine countries.

In addition to supporting the DKET network, DataPath field personnel specialize in designing, installing and managing other critical communications network programs such as the Defense Information Systems Agency's teleport network, the U.S. Army's Joint Network Node (JNN)/Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) program, and the U.S. Marine Corps' Support Wide Area Network (SWAN) program.

The contracting authority for the award, which exercises options on an existing contract, is U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) based in Tampa, Fla.
