Rockwell Collins
: 20 January, 2010  (Application Story)
The US Air Force has contracted Rockwell Collins to provide further technical support for the vital satellite communications teleport facility at the German Ramstein air base used for remote monitoring and communications
Through its recent acquisition of DataPath, Rockwell Collins has been awarded a three-year, $9.1 million contract to provide maintenance and field service support for the Ramstein Air Base satellite communications teleport operated by the US Air Force.

The competitively awarded contract continues the company's support of the Ramstein teleport and the Defense Transportation Reporting and Control System (DTRACS). The contract calls for Rockwell Collins to provide maintenance services for the teleport along with providing remote monitoring of US convoys in Iraq. The teleport will be supported by nine field service engineers.

Program Manager WIN-T's Commercial SATCOM Terminal Program at the US Army Communications-Electronics Command in Fort Monmouth, awarded the delivery order through the Worldwide satellite systems contract.

The teleport is a vital Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) hub for military communications. It links military X band networks with commercial Ku band networks to enhance overall bandwidth capacity and provide network-centric, high-bandwidth capabilities to US forces. Rockwell Collins designed, engineered and built the C band, Ku band and DTRACS Deployable Ku Earth Terminals at the Ramstein facility.

'Rockwell Collins is committed to building on the high level of service and support that DataPath established for the teleport,' said Kent Statler, executive vice president of Rockwell Collins Services. 'We have a longstanding relationship with the Air Force and look forward to meeting and exceeding their requirements for this program.'

Rockwell Collins is a provider of total life cycle service solutions from concept development through sustainment, all uniquely tailored to meet customer requirements. Our proven performance tied with a global support network including more than 400 field service engineers, enables solutions that can quickly be deployed to support our customer where and when they need it, enabling military success.
