The U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Lifecycle Management Command, Ft. Monmouth, N.J., is the contracting authority. The order is the first of four options on an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract that has a total potential value of US$160 million if all options are exercised.
The terminals will provide deployed warfighters with robust, beyond-line- of-sight communications for a broad spectrum of information services including video, multimedia, data and imagery.
Under this order, the U.S. Marine Corps is requesting quantities of General Dynamics Warrior 120 (1.2-meter) and Warrior 180 (1.8-meter) very small aperture (VSAT) flyaway terminals and 2.4-meter trailer-mounted terminals for quick-setup tactical communications.
The Marines SWAN program is acquiring this equipment through the World- Wide Satellite Systems (WWSS) contract, which is intended to provide communications systems that are capable of overcoming existing and projected bandwidth constraints for Department of Defense transformation programs worldwide. WWSS is available to support all federal communications missions, including disaster relief and homeland security efforts.
