DataPath wins Army mobile satellite terminal deal

DataPath, Inc. won a $96 million contract from the Army Communications-Electronics Command in Fort Monmouth, N.J., to deliver 157 trailer-based satellite terminals to support the Army's Joint Network Node initiative, company officials said this week.

DataPath of Duluth, Ga., also provided engineering design and certification services to customize the earth terminals to meet the Army's mission requirements. The contract covers associated technical support, soldier training and spares.

The DataPath 3000?the model chosen for the project?is a compact trailer-based satellite earth terminal that enables secure, voice and data communications where no infrastructure exists.

Deployed in Iraq, the Joint Network Node initiative is a network-centric communications architecture, which provides portable communications to the Army's 3rd Infantry, 101st Airborne, 4th Infantry and 10th Mountain divisions.

The new contract expands the existing deployments to the 1st Cavalry, 25th Infantry and 82nd Airborne divisions and multiple Army National Guard units.

DataPath has more than 230 employees and annual sales of $87.7 million. The company ranks No. 95 on Washington Technology's Top 100 list, which measures federal contracting revenue.
