DataPath gets Marine satellite network orders

DataPath Inc. will continue to support and enhance the Marine Corps' Support Wide Area Network programs with $8.7 million in new delivery orders.

DataPath will upgrade VSAT fly-away systems and satellite transportable terminals. It also will provide spares kits, training programs and other services and support.

The company received in 2007 more than $50 million in contracts related to the Support Wide Area Network programs.

Support Wide Area Network is an integrated, IP-based communications system that utilizes commercial satellite terminals, network baseband equipment, wireless systems, software and support personnel to provide forward-deployed Marines with communications capabilities.

The SWAN programs provide connectivity for the delivery of mission-critical communications such as surveillance video from unmanned aerial vehicles and data support services.

The contracting authority for the SWAN delivery orders is Program Manager WIN-T's Commercial SATCOM Terminal Program at the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command in Fort Monmouth, N.J.

DataPath of Duluth, Ga., ranks No. 47 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
