UltiSat has received a task order from the Defense Information Systems Agency Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization (DISA-DITCO) to provide satellite bandwidth for geospatial intelligence missions.

The contract was awarded under the Future COMSATCOM Services Acquisition (FCSA) Schedule 70 contract vehicle.

Under the task order, the company will provide Ku-band bandwidth capacity to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) Deployable Communications Systems (NDCS).

UltiSat programme director Steve Roth said: "We are excited to partner with the NGA to support their critical mission responding to worldwide crisis or conflict events.”

NGA delivers strategic intelligence that allows the president and national policymakers to make crucial decisions on counterterrorism, weapons of mass destruction and global political crises.

It also enables the warfighter to plan missions, gain battlefield superiority, precisely target the adversary and protect the country's military forces.
