General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) has secured a contract from Advanced Technology International to support a satellite designed to provide communications to the US Army.

Under the contract, GA-EMS will support the Army Resilient Global On-the-move SATCOM (ARGOS) system.

The ARGOS satellite system is capable of providing ultra-high-frequency (UHF) and very high-frequency (VHF) beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS) assured communications and unattended ground sensor (UGS) data capture capabilities for the army.

GA-EMS Missile Defense and Space Systems vice-president Nick Bucci said: “Our team has demonstrated success in the rapid design, development, test, and launch of satellite systems like ARGOS.

“ARGOS will play an important role in delivering beyond the horizon assured communications for the army component and combatant commanders.”

“ARGOS will play an important role in delivering beyond the horizon assured communications for the army component and combatant commanders. A satellite-based system will provide assured communications for future warfighters whenever and wherever they need it.”

The ARGOS satellite also supports the needs of combatant commanders and partner nations.
