Intelsat General Awarded Subcontract to Provide Satellite Connectivity to Iraqi MoD

Intelsat General Corp. has been awarded a subcontract to provide satellite connectivity for the Iraqi Ministry of Defense network of 150 VSAT remote terminals.

The contract is part of a larger $80 million IDIQ award to the 3Di Technologies subsidiary of L-3 Communications Corporation by the U.S. Army Communications and Electronics Command, Foreign Military Sales branch. The subcontract with 3Di calls for Intelsat General to provide nearly a full transponder of capacity on Intelsat’s IS-901 satellite, with connectivity through the company’s Mountainside teleport in Maryland to an iDirect network of 150 terminals.
