Hughes to Supply Satellite Terminals for US Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center
Hughes Network Systems revealed that U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic ordered more than 200 of the Hughes 9211 Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) satellite terminals. The order was placed through Hughes partner Marshall Communications.
“Our Hughes 9211 BGAN comes in a compact, tablet-sized package, providing warfighters a high-speed and reliable communications link in an easy-to-use, low-SWaP system that works in the most demanding situations,” said Hughes Vice President (VP) and General Manager of Defense and Intelligence Systems Rick Lober. “We look forward to working with Marshall Communications Corporation and SSC Atlantic to supply this world-class terminal for their global operations.”
The Hughes 9211 BGAN terminal delivers high-throughput speeds over 650 kilobits per second with multi-user Wi-Fi access and audio tone for signal acquisition. To date, Hughes has delivered these terminals to serve military, media correspondence, public safety and mobile health care needs.
