Hughes has been selected by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to provide custom SATCOM Solutions that enable federal agencies to build large, complex, custom end-to-end satellite solutions.
Under the terms of the Custom Satcom Solutions (CS2) contract, Hughes may provide satellite transport (bandwidth), fixed or mobile satellite service, and service-enabling components such as terminals, handsets, and tail circuits with engineering services to integrate, operate, and maintain the solution, such as:
Emergency response and disaster recovery communications systems
Satellite-based backup communications networks
Distributed distance learning networks
Blue personnel tracking (BPT)
Morale, Welfare, Recreation (MWR)
Communications-on-the-move solutions for Department of Defense (DoD) applications
CS2 is a multiple award, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ), fixed-price contract, which is best suited for large, custom, complex requirements, such as:
Coverage: Can be delivered to coverage areas involving multiple satellites and associated ground stations, and terrestrial infrastructure anywhere in the world
User and network size: Can be comprised of hundreds of end-user locations or points of presence
Capacity: Can require multiple Transponder Equivalent (TPE) of bandwidth or large (100 Mbps or more) committed information rate (CIR) over the satellite links
Terminal types: Can require terminal populations consisting of multiple variants of fixed land, mobile land, and airborne terminals
