MILSATCOM Earth Station Infrastructure Upgrade Contracted to Speedcast Government

An undisclosed U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) entity has awarded Speedcast Government a fixed-price contract for the design, integration, installation and testing of RF equipment for the upgrade of MILSATCOM Earth station infrastructure — the project will commence immediately and is expected to be completed in the July 2020 timeframe.

This contract will ensure the DoD has the most current hardware including amplifiers, receivers, and power supplies necessary to provide highly resilient satellite communications.

Dwight Hunsicker, the EVP of Speedcast Government, said the company is very pleased to win this competitively-procured contract that adds to its long list of SATCOM ground segment infrastructure designed, integrated, installed and supported by tenured Speedcast Government personnel. The Customer will receive a well-engineered system that will meet and most likely exceed all requisite specifications, including difficult Radio frequency tolerances as well as overall reliability and operational availability specifications. Over the past five years, Speedcast Government has provided this U.S. DoD customer with three separate elements of their SATCOM ground segment infrastructure. Their continued confidence in the company's work product, schedule compliance, and overall value offering is of great satisfaction to the entire Speedcast Government organization.
