Cubic Global Defense's subsidiary DTECH Labs has secured an order from GATR Technologies to deliver mobile, modular, micro-single enclave (M3-SE) baseband equipment.

Cubic Global Defense's subsidiary DTECH Labs has secured an order from GATR Technologies to deliver mobile, modular, micro-single enclave (M3-SE) baseband equipment.

Under this initial order, valued at $2.7m, the company will provide the equipment that is paired to GATR Technologies' portable 2.4m inflatable satellite antenna (ISA).

With this development, the company will make ISA a programme of record for the US Marine Corps high-bandwidth signals intelligence palletized terminal (HBSI-PT) programme.

Cubic Global Defense secure networking vice-president Michael Barthlow said: "We strive to provide the most efficient and effective communication solutions to our customers and we are extremely proud to be a part of the US Marine Corps programme supporting our customer GATR Technologies.

"With our innovative offerings, we will continue partnering with our customers to provide the best solutions for military forces worldwide."

"We are extremely proud to be a part of the US Marine Corps programme supporting our customer GATR Technologies."

DTECH's M3-SE baseband includes three network enclaves with a black core transport system.

The system offers high-capacity voice, video and data, for ten to 36 users operating in a signals intelligence environment through any IP-based wireless or wired transmission system.

When integrated with ISA, DTECH's solution reportedly minimises the embarkation footprint and enhances deployability and ease of use.

According to Cubic, the latest order is part of an ongoing partnership with GATR for the three to five-year lifecycle, programme of record with the US Marine Corps.

Cubic Global Defense recently secured a multi-year contract from the US Air Force (USAF) Research Lab (AFRL) to develop and demonstrate a live, virtual, constructive (LVC) system for air combat training.

The contract is part of a programme called the secure LVC advanced training environment (SLATE) advanced technology demonstration (ATD).
