USSOCOM orders more small SATCOM terminals
Florida-based Tampa Microwave has received a $62.1 million modification to an IDIQ contract from US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to provide Satellite Deployable Node - Lite (SDN-L) terminals, ancillary equipment, and spares.
The modification raises the contract ceiling to $132 million, the DoD announced on 3 December.
The SDN-Lite is capable of operating in X-, Ku- and Ka- frequency bands in support of other SDN-family variants including the SND-Medium and SOF Deployable Node-Heavy terminals.
The SDN-Lite is also capable of supporting SATCOM in the Super High Frequency and Extremely High Frequency bands with secure and non-secure voice, video and data communication.
