General Dynamics' mission systems business has awarded PathFinder Digital a follow-on contract to manufacture vehicle-mounted satellite communications terminals designed to support U.S. Army tactical signals intelligence and electronic warfare missions.
PathFinder said Tuesday it will continue to supply the military service's Prophet Program with BAT-750 MVSATs, as well as reset or update BAT-750 terminals with a control technology, EMI filters and other features meant to reduce antenna vibration when used on military mine resistant ambush protected vehicles in challenging terrains.
The company also produces BAT-1214 and BAT-850 terminals, which operate in Ka, Ku and X band frequencies.
General Dynamics initially asked PathFinder to supply MVSAT platforms for the Prophet initiative in 2010.
Pathfinder developed triband mobile ground system VSATs for deployment on the Army's Trojan data network and Warfighter Information Network-Tactical.
