Hughes to Provide EPA Satellite Net for Radiation Monitoring; Tony Bardo Comments

HughesLogoHughes Network Systems has won an order from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to provide satellite broadband services for the agency’s radiation monitoring program.

The company said the EPA ordered 12 months of service for 50 sites to help monitor radiation levels of air, drinking water, pasteurized milk and precipitation across the U.S.

Tony Bardo, Hughes’ assistant vice president of government solutions, said the company will house an access gateway for the RadNet program at Hughes’ network operations center in Germantown, Md.

Hughes will install and deliver satellite broadband services at up to five RadNet locations every month, providing the agency an HN9000 terminal with the goal of expanding and potentially forming a private network.

The EPA acquired the services as part of an upgrade to its network in 2013.
