UltiSat has received a task order from the Defense Forensic Science Center (DFSC) to provide Ku-band managed network services.
The contract was awarded under the Future COMSATCOM Services Acquisition (FCSA) Schedule 70 contract vehicle.
Under the task order, the company will provide Ku bandwidth capacity to the US Central Command (CENTOM) Area of Responsibility, teleport services, Network Operations Center (NOC) support, help desk support, and technical field service support.
UltiSat programme director Steve Roth said: "We are committed to providing quality, high-availability communication infrastructure to help facilitate the DFSC mission of supporting criminal investigations to help prevent future events in deployed, hostile environments.”
UltiSat provides secure, reliable managed network solutions to the US Government and federal agencies.
The company will also support the US Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory (USACIL), which is the only full-service forensic laboratory in the Department of Defense (DoD).
UltiSat will provide USACIL with forensic services for criminal investigations within DoD, as well as support joint force commanders and warfighters.
The latest order is the second COMSATCOM task order received by the company this month.
Under the previous order, UltiSat will provide Ku-band bandwidth capacity to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) Deployable Communications Systems (NDCS).
NGA delivers strategic intelligence that allows the president and national policymakers to make crucial decisions on counter-terrorism, weapons of mass destruction and global political crises.
It also helps warfighters to plan missions, gain battlefield superiority, target enemies and protect the country's military forces.
