These contracts support the premier Army intelligence network, using the SES global data network. Both contracts were awarded as Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA’s) with a five year period of performance. While there is no minimum guarantee under a BPA for either contract, the current contract with SES GS currently utilizes slightly more than 400 MHz. The SES GS suite of capabilities enhances combat readiness of military personnel by streaming data, voice and video to and from intelligence centers. Performance on the program is based on delivering operational availability at the highest levels. This network also includes terminals and ground infrastructure for the U.S. Army soldiers and decision makers from multiple locations across the globe.
The Army’s TROJAN Network provides access to a global, end-to-end network, complete with multi-band service tailored to meet specific U.S. INSCOM requirements. SES GS was awarded the initial TROJAN contract in 1998 and works closely with U.S. Army INSCOM to ensure the network is maximized to support U.S. Army decision-makers.
