General Dynamics - Satellite Terminals for US Army

General Dynamics
: 12 April, 2008  (New Product)
General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies has been awarded $109 million from the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command in Fort Monmouth, N.J., to provide specialized satellite communications earth terminals and support services for Increment One of the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) program.
Under the contract, General Dynamics will provide the U.S. Army 299 Satellite Transportable Terminals (STT) and two Unit Hub SATCOM Trucks (UHST). General Dynamics will also supply Ka-band upgrade kits and spares. The next-generation STT terminal can be configured to operate over Ku or Ka Band satellite frequencies. The new UHST provides Ku or Ka Band operation and increased modem capacity. Both the new STT and UHST are interoperable with previously fielded units.

'The SATCOM terminals General Dynamics is providing for WIN-T deliver robust, beyond-line-of-sight communications for a broad spectrum of information services,' said Gary Kanipe, General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies vice president and general manager. 'Both the STT and UHST units allow U.S. warfighters to quickly establish and maintain communications in hazardous conditions. In addition, as production of the SATCOM terminals increases, the units will be available for NATO and other U.S. allies as a solution for mobile tactical SATCOM requirements.'

The SATCOM terminal award for WIN-T Increment One was made through the Army's World-Wide satellite systems (WWSS) contract, managed by the Commercial Satellite Terminal Program (CSTP), which provides communications systems capable of overcoming bandwidth constraints for Department of Defense transformation programs worldwide.
