Leonardo DRS receives USSOCOM contract
Leonardo DRS has received a contract to provide the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) with satellite communications and support for its headquarters, components and major subordinate units operating around the world, the company announced on 28 May.
The contract, worth up to $977 million over a maximum term of eight years, will see the company provide USSOCOM’s Global Access Network system engineered to meet global commercial satellite communications needs.
USSOCOM requires an integrated satellite and terrestrial telecommunications system to support the dissemination of C4I information between USSOCOM, its components, and their major subordinate units as well as selected US government agencies and activities directly associated with the special operations community.
Network connectivity includes satellite transmission and terrestrial services, which connect communication hubs to deployed communication nodes located inside and outside the continental US in support of deployed Special Operations Forces.
