ViaSat was recently awarded a Lot 14 order valued at $21.7 million for Multifunctional Information Distribution System - Low Volume Terminals (MIDS-LVT) for the U.S. Government, Australia, Oman, and Thailand.

These MIDS-LVT airborne terminals are for U.S. Government aircraft as well as over 50% to FMS sales.
"This Lot 14 award recognizes our exceptional delivery and terminal maintenance performance," said Jay Kaufman, general manager, ViaSat Tactical Data Links. "The award also extends our high-quality terminals and support services to our growing family of international customers."
