Communications Teleport Installed For US Government Use

SES World Skies
: 31 March, 2010  (Application Story)
DRS and SES World Skies are jointly providing a communication node for the Department of Defence
Making use of its advanced teleport and a long-term alliance with DRS Technical Services, SES World Skies is hosting a new, mission-critical Department of Defence communications node near the nation’s capital.

By installing a Defence Information Systems Network (DISN) connection point at SES World Skies’ media port in Manassas, Virginia, the US government has greatly enhanced its access to World Skies bandwidth and global connectivity. The advanced uplinking facility is a strategic communications crossroads with access to some of the most robust fibre and satellite networks, including the worldwide SES fleet and DRS Technical Services’ Global Communications Network (GCN).

DRS Technical Services, through its Global Enterprise Solutions business unit, is a primary communications services provider to the US government, under the defence satellite Transmission Services – Global Procurement Program managed by the Defence Information Systems Agency (DISA). Together with SES World Skies, DRS enables a broad range of mission-critical applications that enable real-time collaboration between headquarters and field operations around the world.

“The installation of a communications node within our Virginia teleport gives the US government easy access to powerful global connectivity options,” explained Robert Bednarek, President and CEO of SES World Skies. “While the Defence Information Systems Network carries the majority of US government voice, video and data traffic, government agencies increasingly depend on SES World Skies and DRS Technical Services for anywhere to anywhere communications.”

“For nearly a decade, SES World Skies and DRS Technical Services have joined forces to meet the growing global demand for government and enterprise communications services,” said Jim Scott, Vice President and General Manager of Global Enterprise Solutions for DRS Technical Services. “The DISN installation at the SES World Skies facility, just minutes from DISA, The Pentagon, and other strategic Capitol-area locations, opens the door to a new level of network expandability in virtually every corner of the world.”
