Hughes Network Systems plans to offer satellite communications platforms to the U.S. Air Force through the company’s prime position on a $950 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for the development of an all-domain military information sharing system.
Germantown, Maryland-based Hughes said Tuesday it was one of the companies aiming to develop technologies for military personnel to access data from different systems and domains as part of USAF’s $950 million Advanced Battle Management System program.
The ABMS effort is part of the Department of Defense’s Joint All Domain Command and Control strategy.
“This opportunity reflects our leadership in engineering open standard, interoperable network solutions that enable Department of Defense networks to operate as one,” said Rick Lober, vice president and general manager of Hughes’ defense and intelligence systems division.
Lober added that the company is looking to bring its Terminal Management Agent and other multi-transport technologies to the service branch’s future network.
