US Army selects DataPath to provide communications links
DataPath has received a contract from the US Army to provide communications services in support of the Homeland Defense and Defense Support of Civil Authorities, the company announced on 25 February.
Under the contract, DataPath will supply satellite communications hardware, software and systems installation and maintenance services to support communications interoperability between a variety of military and civil response organisations.
The programme supports the US Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) Deployable Communications Capabilities Systems including North American Aerospace Defense, USNORTHCOM Subordinate and Component Commands, mission partners, and the Army North. The USNORTHCOM Theater of Operations commands and controls the army, navy, air force, and Marine Corps forces in the North American continent.
To provide these services, DataPath is partnering with SAIC.
Programme communications platforms include vehicular and transit-cased systems. DataPath's project covers service areas such as system lifecycle support, project management, capability design, system modifications, technical refreshment, equipment training, technical support, service desk, equipment repair, spare parts management and reporting.
Sherin Kamal, chief executive officer, DataPath, said: ‘Communications interoperability between military and civil response units is critical to mission success. Since Homeland Defense and Defense Support of Civil Authorities events cannot be pre-identified by location, all of these communications capabilities are commercial satellite link capable and connected.
‘In addition to Homeland Defense, the USNORTHCOM mission includes the DSCA response for other disasters, such as hurricanes, floods and wildfires.’
