ViaSat Awarded $21 M Lot 10 MIDS LVT Delivery Order

(Carlsbad, Calif., July 1, 2009) -- ViaSat Inc. (Nasdaq:VSAT) has won a delivery order valued at approximately $21 million for Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) terminals from The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), San Diego. MIDS provides greater situational awareness in combat for U.S. Navy, Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and for U.S. defense partners by gathering information into a digital view of the battlefield. The secure, high capacity, jam resistant wireless (non-satellite) system connects users with both digital data and digital voice communications. Delivery of Lot 10 units is expected to begin in July of next year and continue through the end of 2010.

The Lot 10 order includes LVT(1) airborne and LVT(2) ground-based Low Volume Terminals under the Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract awarded in January 2000. The new award includes LVT(1) terminal variants for F/A-18+, E/A-18G aircraft and MH-60R/S and CH-53K helicopters. The Lot 10 order also includes MIDS LVT(2) terminal variants for various U.S. Army and Air Force applications, as well terminals for Canada and Germany.


"This award exemplifies our continuing high value proposition in both the domestic and international MIDS markets," said Jay Kaufman, MIDS LVT program director at ViaSat. "With outstanding engineering and production teams - and the help of our trusted vendors - we've focused on responsiveness in fulfilling the needs of the MIDS community."
