The DataPath DKET LT is a transportable self-contained earth terminal for satellite communications via the SATCOM network.
The tech control facility comprises four 30-ft transportable shelters--three housing communications equipment and one housing a backup generator and uninterruptible power supply (UPS)--and provides Tier 1 Internet protocol connectivity to the Nonsecure Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNET), the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNET), and the Combined Enterprise Regional Information Exchange System (CENTRIXS), with transmission connectivity through Deployable KuBand Earth Terminals (DKETs).
To meet that need, a Jan 09 planning session with the 101st G6, ARCENT, 335th, 160th SC BDE, and 25th SC BN devised a design that included a USAFCENT mobile DKET in conjunction with interconnection of the Regional Hub Node (RHN) in Kuwait for a mesh architecture.
Network planners allowed for a 90 to 120 day overlap before bridging solely into the Marine DKET network.
Direct connectivity via a Strategic Tactical Entry Point site or commercial equivalents, DKET, gave us much better quality of service.
Given the mobility of the brigade and the changing mission sets placing a MRT in Camp Doha, KU, connected to a DKETS would provide SIPRNET on demand to TTs as well as a control/management location external of the brigade.
