DISA Lifts Stop-Work Order on Inmarsat’s $450M Satcom Services Contract

InmarsatGovtLogoThe Defense Information Systems Agency has given Inmarsat’s U.S. federal government subsidiary notice to proceed on multiband satellite communications services under a potential five-year, $450 million contract after DISA lifted a prior stop-work order on the award.

DISA revoked the stop-work order issued on Inmarsat Government through a contract modification, the Defense Department said Friday.

The agency selected Inmarsat Government in September 2015 to provide satellite coverage in Ku, Ka, C and X bands for the agency’s mobile and fixed ground, maritime and aerial transceivers.

Inmarsat Government will perform work from July 22, 2016 through July 21, 2017 under the revised contract’s one-year base term and DISA holds options to extend services through July 21, 2021.
