DataPath has been awarded a potential $363 million contract to support various satellite communication terminals and controllers that the U.S. ArmyÂ uses in the field, Space News reported Sunday.
Phillip Swarts writes DataPathÂ will manage the deployment of approximatelyÂ 200 field services support personnel to military sites globally under the Global Tactical Advanced Communication Systems contract.
“Weâre providing the full range of support for basically every class of satcom terminal in the field, from a man-pack portable terminal to a vehicle mounted system to one thatâs built into a trailer or a mobile command center, ” said DataPath president and CEO David Myers.
Myers added the company has supported the military branchÂ over the past two decades.
The report said the GTACS contract will run for four and a half years and consolidates allÂ previous agreements that were part ofÂ an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for Army satcom equipment support services.
DataPath designed its systems to integrate with the U.S. military’s Wideband Global Satcom system.
