AFCENT Taps Intelsat General for Ku-Band Satellite Services; Skot Butler Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

satellite airforceThe U.S. Air Forces Central Command has awarded Intelsat General a contract to deliver Ku-band satellite services in support of the command’s communication activities in the Middle East.

Intelsat General said Nov. 23 it will provide AFCENT up to 144 megahertz of Ku-band connectivity using the company’s satcom technology.

“The deployed airmen are operating satellite ground terminals supporting C4ISR networks at numerous remote and expeditionary locations requiring a single-satellite solution that was not readily available,” said Skot Butler, vice president of Intelsat General’s satellite networks and space services business.

Butler added the company aims to help address that requirement through the contract.

The contract has a one-year base performance period that commenced in September, a three-year renewal option and an additional six-month extension option.
