Hughes Network Systems has received a contract from the US Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic to supply more than 200 Hughes 9211 Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) satellite terminals.

The contract, which was placed through Hughes partner Marshall Communications, requires Hughes to outfit SSC Atlantic with High Data Rate (HDR) terminal. This will enable mission-critical military communications to be mobile and portable.

Hughes Network Systems defence and intelligence systems vice-president and general manager Rick Lober said: “For mobile military communications, portability is as essential as reliable connectivity.

“Our Hughes 9211 BGAN comes in a compact, tablet-sized package, providing warfighters a high-speed and reliable communications link in an easy-to-use, low-SWaP system that works in the most demanding situations.

“Hughes 9211 BGAN terminal delivers broadband speeds of more than 650kbps and has built-in, multi-user Wi-Fi access that enables multiple team members to operate simultaneously.”

“We look forward to working with Marshall Communications and SSC Atlantic to supply this world-class terminal for their global operations.”

The Hughes 9211 BGAN terminal is designed to offer high-speed satellite connectivity in a lightweight and ruggedised device that supports easy deployment in challenging environments.
