Intelsat is Awarded US Army's 1st SATCOM as a Managed Service Pilot Contract

Intelsat, operator of one of the world’s largest integrated satellite and terrestrial networks, will soon provide the U.S Army with new, flexible, and fully managed multi-orbit satellite communications (SATCOM) support, following the award of the Army’s first-ever Satellite Communication (SATCOM) as a Managed Service (SaaMS) contract.

“As the largest, most trusted provider of SATCOM services to the U.S. Government, Intelsat understands the Army’s requirement for a new managed subscription service,” said Rick Henry, VP, Business Operations of Intelsat’s Government Solutions division. “This pilot program will demonstrate that a commercially-managed SATCOM model can deliver the latest equipment and highest level of customer service for rapid deployment and surge requirements for different missions.”

The scope of the Army’s SaaMS pilot includes end-to-end managed subscription services to support connections with commercial teleports and internet services. The Intelsat solution includes Intelsat Flex services for geostationary (GEO) connections and a well-known commercial low-earth orbit (LEO) satellite service provider for a LEO option. The pilot will provide world-wide coverage via leased satellite terminals and services with 24x7support.
