A $300 million win — the Global Tactical Advanced Communication Systems contract — is now owned by DataPath as that firm becomes the new, lead support firm for the US Army's SATCOM field services.
The firm will also support the Pentagon's Combatant Commands with this four-and-a-half year contact and will find DataPath supporting just about every known SATCOM terminal that's used in the field. This includes the likes of manpacks, systems mounted on vehicles, command trailers and mobile command centers.
More than 200 DataPath field service technicians will now be sent to various military commands in 20 countries. The DoD's Wideband Global SATCOM systems (WGS) as well as Inmarsat's Global Xpress and systems from SES and Intelsat are all compatible with the company's terminals and support expertise.
