Datapath selected for GTACS contract

22nd December 2016 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


DataPath will provide satellite communications support services for the US Army's Global Tactical Advanced Communication Systems (GTACS) programme under a four-and-a-half-year contract estimated at $363 million. The company announced the contract on 20 December.

The award combines field support service needs previously addressed by multiple contract vehicles into a single programme, along with new and emerging requirements. 

DataPath will provide field support services for tactical satellite systems deployed globally by the US military, including man-pack terminals, fly-away antennas, trailer-based terminals, mobile earth terminal vehicles, and large-scale earth terminals. This includes providing the expertise to install, maintain and repair all the equipment deployed in the army's Warfighter Information Network – Tactical (WIN-T).

David Myers, president and CEO of DataPath, said: ‘With all the threats facing our nation's military today, reliable communications are more important than ever. We understand that keeping the military's critical communications systems online, connecting service men and women in the field to headquarters, is fundamental to safety and mission success.

‘DataPath is proud to support that mission and sees itself as an extension of the WIN-T programme, focused on providing unwavering customer service.’
