RESTON, Va., 22 April 2016. Satellite solutions provider SES Government Solutions (SES GS) won two U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) follow-on contracts to support the Army intelligence network using the SES global data network.
“By using the latest commercial satellite capabilities as part of the TROJAN network, senior U.S. Government leaders are able to quickly get the right information they need to make critical decisions,” says SES Government Solutions President/CEO Peter Hoene.
The Army’s TROJAN Network provides access to a global, end-to-end network, complete with multi-band service tailored to meet specific U.S. INSCOM requirements. The TROJAN mobile SHF satellite communications (SATCOM) system uses commercial or military satellites to receive, transmit, and process 14 channels of secure, voice, data, video teleconferencing (VTC), and facsimile communications.
The SES GS suite of capabilities enhances combat readiness of military personnel by streaming data, voice, and video to and from intelligence centers. Performance on the program is based on delivering operational availability at the highest levels. This network also includes terminals and ground infrastructure for the U.S. Army soldiers and decision makers from multiple locations across the globe.
Both contracts were awarded as Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) with a five-year period of performance. While there is no minimum guarantee under a BPA for either contract, the current contract with SES GS currently utilizes slightly more than 400 MHz.
SES GS won the initial TROJAN contract in 1998 and works closely with U.S. Army INSCOM to ensure the network is maximized to support U.S. Army decision-makers.
