US Army Orders GATR Inflatable SATCOM and Networking Systems

$55 Million for Cubic Subsidiary

Cubic Mission Systems announced on 6 September that its subsidiary, GATR Technologies, has received a $55 million order from the US Army for 1.2 and 2.4m inflatable satellite communication (SATCOM) and networking systems, associated spares, training and support.

Cubic’s solution provides robust high-speed links that enable secure network communications, sustainment support and mission command across the full spectrum of operations, from initial entry to sustained operations. The decreased size, weight and power (SWaP) of a GATR 2.4-meter system provides up to four times the performance when compared with similar transit volume and weight antennas.

The GATR systems’ compact pack-out size and innovative design provides significant improvements in transportability, throughput and setup speed, providing essential communications when and where they are needed most.

Cubic’s GATR satellite communication and networking systems offer the transportability, high-bandwidth capabilities and the ease of setup necessary for Army units to execute their mission,” commented Cubic Mission Solutions President, Mike Twyman. “We are proud to continue our work with the Army and look forward to delivering solutions that offer tremendous operational advantages to our customer.”
