Arrowhead Global Solutions, the government services division of CapRock Communications, has been awarded two multimillion dollar contracts to provide more than 200 MHz of commercial X-band satellite services to two U.S. Government agencies.
The satellite services will use the XTAR-EUR and XTAR-LANT satellites that are reserved exclusively for government and military applications. These wins mark two of the largest single awards of commercial X-band satellite services and come just two months after CapRock’s government solutions division unveiled the industry’s first commercial X-band managed service offering. To support the missions of its government clients, Arrowhead has made significant investments in X-band teleport infrastructure and satellite capacity, signing a strategic agreement with XTAR, LLC that includes multiple transponders on its X-band fleet.
Arrowhead’s new end-to-end commercial X-band satellite solutions are part of a strategic initiative to accelerate the company’s evolution as a provider of value-added managed services specifically for the military, intelligence, and civilian government communities. XTAR, LLC is the only U.S. provider of commercial X-band capacity through its two owned and operated payloads, XTAR-EUR and XTAR-LANT. By leveraging CapRock’s unique systems integration capabilities and self-owned and operated network infrastructure, Arrowhead has developed global connectivity solutions designed to meet the emerging requirements of government missions. Government clients benefit from a single source for all their field services, teleport services and terrestrial interconnects to public, private and government network gateways.
