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 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
