Viasat MBR-4020 Modem to Operate on WGS Network

Viasat’s Military-Grade Airborne Modem Achieves Authorisation to Operate Across Government Satellite Communications Networks

 

Viasat Inc., a global communications company, today announced its Mobile Broadband Router (MBR)-4020 airborne modem has successfully completed the US Army Forces Strategic Command (ARSTRAT) certification process. By completing the certification, the Viasat MBR-4020 modem is now authorised to operate on the Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) network, which will significantly reduce overall satellite communications (SATCOM) costs for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) customers and very important person special airlift mission (VIPSAM) aircraft.

The Viasat MBR-4020 is a dual-band, multi-mode software-defined modem, capable of industry-leading network interoperability and operational flexibility today. It is one device that can serve the high-speed, secure, resilient and ubiquitous airborne mission needs of military customers.

Obtaining ARSTRAT certification for the MBR-4020 modem demonstrates our ability to rapidly deliver solutions that can seamlessly integrate into a hybrid adaptive network architecture to meet rapidly evolving in-flight mission and communications needs,” said Ken Peterman, President, Government Systems, Viasat. “With Viasat’s MBR-4020, VIPSAM and ISR customers have a communications infrastructure that can roam among networks and orbital regimes in order to deliver advanced connectivity services for evolving operations and en-route mission planning requirements.”
