Envistacom has received a three-year, $47.8M task order to integrate multi-band features and other modifications into the U.S. Army's satellite communication terminals designed to support the U.S. Central Command and African Command's international communications.
The Atlanta-based defense and intelligence firm said Wednesday it will provide installation, relocation and training support for the Deployable Ku Band Earth Terminal and assist the Army's Product Manager Satcom in updating current and existing DKET “lite“ and mobile versions.
Work under the task order also includes the delivery of spares and terminals as well as antennas with expanded capacity for Ku, Ka and X-band transmissions.
Nelson Santini, senior vice president of sales at Envistacom, said the company intends to implement virtualization techniques and new technologies as part of the effort.
He added that Envistacom has been providing satcom support for the Department of Defense's global networks for over two decades.
Envistacom secured the task order through the Deployable Adaptive Global Responder Support indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, which has a potential value of $480M for a five-year period.
