Round Two

In the March 30 FCW supplement "Mission Accomplished," Boeing Information Services is identified as a manufacturer of Global Positioning System satellites. This is incorrect; Boeing North American Inc. is the manufacturer. In the same supplement, FCW identified the current satellite communications supplier for telemedicine communications in Bosnia as Hughes Global Services. The Army plans to install very small-aperture satellite terminals at an as-yet-undetermined number of base camps and remote posts in Bosnia, but until then it uses dial-up service over International Maritime Satellite Organization satellites.

Due to an inaccuracy in a press release, a Fedwire in the March 30 issue should have said the General Services Administration will support and assist the Federal Aviation Administration in developing the FAA Integrated Communications System for the 21st Century program but will not manage the program.
