Satellite solutions provider SES Government Solutions (SES GS) has secured two Trojan follow-on contracts to support the US Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM)'s network.

Under the terms of the five-year blanket purchase agreements (BPA), the company will support the army's intelligence network, using the SES global data network.

The contract will ensure the secure transmission of military personnel through streaming data, voice and video to and from intelligence centres.

The network provides terminals and ground infrastructure for soldiers and decision-makers worldwide.

"By using the latest commercial satellite capabilities as part of the Trojan network, senior US Government leaders are able to quickly get the right information."

SES Government Solutions president & CEO Peter Hoene said: "By using the latest commercial satellite capabilities as part of the Trojan network, senior US Government leaders are able to quickly get the right information they need to make critical decisions."

The Trojan programme aims to improve the transmission of secure, mission-critical information to commanders on the battlefield.

Since 1998, the company has worked to provide enhanced network capabilities for INSCOM.

INSCOM is a direct reporting unit that conducts intelligence, security, and information operations for commanders and national decision-makers.
