ViaSat Inc. (Nasdaq:VSAT) was awarded Lot 13 orders valued at $33.9 million for Multifunctional Information Distribution System-Low Volume Terminals (MIDS-LVT) for the U.S. Government and Turkey.

The MIDS LVT terminals are for U.S. Government E/A-18G, P-3, EP-3E, P-8A, MH-60R, E-2D, B-1, and ground terminal applications (63%), and FMS sales to Turkey (37%).
