05:20 EDTVSATViaSat, Eutelsat enter into interconnection agreement
ViaSat and Eutelsat have entered into a pioneering agreement that will enable service access and roaming on each other's high-capacity satellite networks; KA-SAT for Eutelsat and ViaSat-1 for ViaSat. Both Ka-band networks, representing well over half of all Ka-band capacity on orbit worldwide, share the same high-capacity satellite ecosystem, enabled by the ViaSat Broadband System, along with other ground infrastructure owned and operated by Eutelsat and ViaSat. The resulting high-capacity service area will span North America, Europe, and the Mediterranean Basin. Customers will be able to operate an array of fixed and mobile services including in-flight connectivity, maritime, emergency relief, oil and gas operations, and government applications anywhere within the combined coverage areas. The agreement also includes provisions for future satellites and follow-on technologies as they complement current Eutelsat and ViaSat High Throughput Satellites. That future includes ViaSat-2, scheduled for launch in 2016, which is designed to cover a broader footprint in North America, Central America, the Gulf of Mexico, the Carribean, and to bridge the North Atlantic to form a blanket of high-capacity coverage across the region.

Data Link Solutions (DTLK) and ViaSat (VSAT) are being awarded a combined $116.75M modification to a previously awarded multiple award contract to exercise options for systems engineering and integration for the Multifunctional Information Distribution System (MIDS) Low Volume Terminal, or LVT, and the MIDS Joint Tactical Radio Systems, or JTRS, terminal. The MIDS-LVT provides secure, high-capacity, jam-resistant, digital data and voice communications capability for Navy, Air Force and Army platforms. MIDS JTRS is a pre-planned product improvement replacement transforming the MIDS-LVT into a four-channel, software communications architecture compliant JTRS terminal while maintaining current Link 16 and tactical air navigation capability. For Data Link Solutions, work will be performed in Wayne, New Jersey and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. For ViaSat, work will be performed in Carlsbad, California. Work is expected to be completed by March 9, 2015. The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, San Diego, California, is the contracting activity.
