US DISA Awards EMSS Contract to Intelligent Waves

$48 Million Over Five Years for Satcom Logistics Support

Reston, VA-based Intelligent Waves announced on 23 January it has been awarded an Enhanced Mobile Satellite Services (EMSS) Global Logistical Services Management Contract (ELOG) contract by the US Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), with a lifecycle value of $48 million (€43.3 million) over a one-year base with four one-year options.

EMSS provides deployed troops and partnering agencies with global communication services through a dedicated, EMSS-controlled satellite gateway that leverages the commercial Iridium satellite constellation. EMSS services and support include the Distributed Tactical Communication System (DTCS), an over-the-horizon, beyond-line-of-sight, netted satcom capability that employs cutting-edge devices and corresponding systems to allow users to transmit information from unique environments.

Intelligent Waves will provide global logistical service management and field service representatives in support of the DTCS and EMSS programmes. The contract will ensure operational, engineering and technical requirements are successfully achieved for current and future devices as technologies within the EMSS portfolio rapidly evolve.

For over a decade, Intelligent Waves has proudly supported […] military operations with sophisticated communication systems,” observed Chief Technology Officer, Marqus Hutchinson. “This award demonstrates our ability to deliver mission-critical solutions in support of our customers.”
