Rockwell Collins Selected to Provide SATCOM System

Rockwell Collins has been awarded a second contract for a Deployable Ku-Band Earth Terminal (DKET) SATCOM system by the New Zealand Defence Force as part of the Strategic Bearer Network Phase 1 program. This contract follows an initial award in June 2013 for one DKET dual-antenna, deployable ground station.

“Integrating the complex communications systems for the New Zealand Defence Force ensures they can deliver the right information at the right time,” said James Walker, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins.

The New Zealand Defence Force’s Strategic Bearer Network Phase 1 program oversees the modernization of networked communications equipment interfacing with the Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) system. Using the WGS, the DKET SATCOM terminal delivers information securely and instantly, while avoiding the cost of commercial satellite airtime.

Integrated by Rockwell Collins in Australia, the DKET Earth Terminal enables the transmission of high-bandwidth data, such as voice, imagery and video, across long distances and rugged, remote environments.

Work under the contract will be managed from the Lane Cove, Sydney, office.
