Related Links

The Army issued a solicitation today for the five-year, $5 billion World-Wide Satellite Systems contract.

The contract will provide a vehicle for the military and government agencies to buy commercial terminals and services for satellite communications. The Army will award as many as six indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity deals in late spring 2006, with the intent for two to go to small businesses.

The six commercial satellite terminals offered on the contract are very small-aperture terminals (VSATs) for combat service support, flyaway VSATs, deployable satellite Earth terminals, fixed-station terminals, military-certified terminals and prime mover/trailer-mounted terminals. They might be required to operate with military or commercial satellites in the C-, Ku-, X- and Ka-bands.

Proposals are due March 13 at 10 a.m.
