Space Force and DISA Turn to SES Space & Defense for WIN-T Satellite Capacity

The U.S. Space Force’s Commercial SATCOM Communication Office (CSCO) has awarded a five-year Commercial Satellite Communications (COMSATCOM) Transponded Capacity (CTC) contract worth $27.54 million to SES Space & Defense.

This contract, which was awarded through the Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization (DITCO), will provide satellite communications capabilities in support of the U.S. Army Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) training activities.

These capabilities will enable the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM) and the U.S. Army Forces Command (FORSCOM) units to train and prepare a combat-ready, globally responsive Total Force.

Leveraging SES’s global satellite fleet, the capabilities delivered by SES Space & Defense will allow the U.S. Army to continue to build and sustain combatant command readiness requirements, and enable research and development activities for testing new applications for mobile missions.

“SES Space & Defense has a longstanding relationship with the U.S. Army and has been supporting the WIN-T program’s evolving needs for over a decade,” said SES Space & Defense President and CEO, David Fields. “As the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) adopts new and more advanced information technology capabilities, it is key that we support them with the much-needed resilient and secure satellite communications in multiple orbits and bands.”
