Viasat to Modernise US Operational Capabilities

Five-Year Sole-Source Contract for Rapid Migration of C5AD Capability

Viasat has been selected by the US General Services Administration to modernise operational capabilities for US special and general-purpose forces, the company announced on 21 May.

The five-year, sole-source indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, with a maximum ceiling of $450 million (€402 million) covers rapid migration of Command, Control, Communications and Computers/Cyber (C5AD) Capability Best Practice. Viasat will deliver a diverse portfolio of technologies and services to advance communications, intelligence, security and operational capabilities for troops operating across the battlespace. Viasat products and services included as part of the IDIQ were assessed, tested and validated to enable new concepts of operation, improve situational awareness, avoid fratricide and improve overall mission effectiveness.

The contract is structured to meet the immediate needs of the Department of Defense in the mobile networking, cybersecurity and broadband satellite communications technology sectors. The flexible nature of the IDIQ will allow US forces to rapidly acquire and deploy a wide variety of new operational capabilities, products, systems and services in order to help significantly enhance overall mission effectiveness and improve safety for those operating across the battlespace.
