1st September 2020 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


US Naval Information Warfare System Command, acting on behalf of the Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) Program Office, has ordered KOR 24A multi-channel small tactical terminals from Viasat.

The company will produce and supply an undisclosed number of terminals until September 2021. It will perform the work in Carlsbad, California. 

‘This contract supports Foreign Military Sales (FMS) cases for international partner nations,’ the DoD noted in a 31 August announcement, although no further details of these customers were divulged.

Shephard Defence Insight notes that KOR 24 terminals are interoperable with MIDS Link 16 or UHF data radios to exchange secure situational awareness information and data communications with allied air, land and sea platforms.
