This task order falls under the Future COMSATCOM Services Acquisition (FCSA) Schedule 70 contract vehicle.
When you talk about KAband and X-band for MILSATCOM and KU-band for COMSATCOM, you end up going in two different directions where the assets on the ground have terminals that don't necessarily work with one or the other.
Under the contract, Hughes will provide COMSATCOM end-to-end solutions to meet the unique needs of government customers, including fixed satellite services and/or mobile satellite services, components and equipment such as terminals, teleports, circuits, subscriber identity module cards and peripherals.
In most cases, DOD components use COMSATCOM not by choice but because MILSATCOM is unavailable when it is most needed.
More specifically, Hughes will provide satellite capacity, project management, COMSATCOM engineering system design, configuration, installation, implementation and training, maintenance and operational support and helpdesk support.
These are the COMSATCOM Transponded Capacity (SIN 132-54), which includes owning/operating or reselling dedicated bandwidth and power on a communications satellite in any available COMSATCOM frequency band, and the COMSATCOM Subscription Services (SIN 132-55), which includes COMSATCOM Subscription Services consisting of pre-existing, pre-engineered Fixed Satellite Service and/or Mobile Satellite Service solutions.
Such services are currently acquired through the General Services Administration and DISA with Future ComSatCom Services Acquisition contracts, basically the same indefinite delivery/indefinitely quantity mechanism used to buy mundane items as pens and paper.
The contract is a multiple award, Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) vehicle and the final component of the Future COMSATCOM Services Acquisition (FCSA) programme, a joint acquisition programme between the Defence Information Systems Agency (DISA) and GSA that enables government agencies to purchase satellite communications.
Under this contract SGSI will provide commercial satellite communications (COMSATCOM) products and services to the US Government.
London, United Kingdom, October 10, 2018 --( The landscape of defence satellite communications is changing rapidly, on both sides of the Atlantic - with the announcement of a new Air Force Space Command and conclusion of the Wideband AoA, the addition of new enduring capability for Skynet 6 and a new era of LEO mega-constellations set to provide new COMSATCOM bandwidth for military partners.
