DataPath, Inc. has received a $3.7 million order to provide on-site personnel to operate and maintain satellite communications (SATCOM) systems managed by the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM) in the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) area of operations. The agreement, which exercises options on an existing delivery order, will fund more than 30 DataPath technical personnel in Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, and Afghanistan over the next 12 months to support U.S. military battlefield communications systems. These deployments will include Deployable Ku Band Earth Terminals (DKETs) built by DataPath. Since August 2007, DataPath has received approximately $24 million in funding for services under this delivery order.
