DISA, GSA Approve Boeing for SATCOM Services; Craig Crooning Comments

Boeing has received approval from the Defense Information Systems Agency and General Services Administration to provide government agencies satellite communications services, the company announced Wednesday.

Through the Future COMSATCOM Services Acquisition program, the company will offer U.S. customers fixed and mobile transponded and subscription services.

DRS Technical Services and Hughes Network Systems recently won positions on a potential $2.6 billion contract awarded under that program.

Boeing has gained another way to provide customers the services using several frequencies including Inmarsat-5 Ka-band, said Craig Crooning, CEO for international satellite systems.

Customers can acquire these services under Boeing’s GSA Schedule 70 contract.

The company will also offer military-specific services such as ultra high frequency and Yahsat’s military Ka-band, commercial services in the Ku and Ka bands and Inmarsat L-band and Thuraya L-band.
