Hughes to Help NWS Backup Comm Satellite System

Hughes-logoHughes Network Systems will provide technical support to the National Weather Service for a communications system that delivers information to forecast offices.

NWS intends for Hughes to backup and help maintain performance of 63 satellite terminals that work to interpret and transmit data from an operational systems network, Hughes said Monday.

Under the contract, the company will also conduct engineering and maintenance services that aim to protect programs from interruptions during emergencies.

Tony Bardo, assistant vice president of government solutions at Hughes, said satellite technology aims to provider users a backup network path for emergency communications and continuity of operations during disasters.

Hughes will also offer remote assistance to NWS as the company seeks monitor activities of the satellite terminals and help the agency coordinate with other agencies through a network operations center.
