SES Government Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SES, has teamed with prime contractor Bushtex to provide commercial Ku-band bandwidth to U.S. Air Combat Command (ACC). This satellite communications capability will support training and testing operations in the continental U.S.

Bushtex, a woman- and minority-owned small business based in Arizona, is a satellite communications provider that currently delivers commercial services for a variety of Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and other U.S. Government agencies. To support this contract, Bushtex leveraged SES GS’ experience in providing satellite communication services for the U.S. DoD, and more specifically for the U.S. Air Force, over the past 30 years.

The contract is a 12-month base year with four one-year option periods starting on Aug. 1. The total contract value is $29.3 million. The award includes the ability to provide optional surge capacity over the life of the contract, with a six-month extension option.
