ViaSat, Inc. (VSAT) announced it was awarded a $33,291,975.00 cost-plus-incentive-fee contract for the Protected Tactical Service Field Demonstration (PTSFD), which will provide wideband anti-jam communications to tactical users across both government and commercial satellites. This program will include the development of a Protected Tactical Waveform (PTW) modem as well as an embedded cryptographic unit. The Protected Tactical System capability ensures U.S. military forces can stay connected, informed and productive in a jammed operational environment.
The PTSFD program will demonstrate the ability to provide wideband anti-jam communications to tactical users using the Wideband Global Satellite Communications (SATCOM) constellation and commercial SATCOM. The program enables the U.S. government to move more rapidly by taking advantage of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems with limited development. The program also allows government users to take advantage of the commercial satellite fleet while providing superior protected communications. This will allow for a higher degree of operational flexibility and access to significantly more bandwidth than is possible with the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) constellation alone.
