IDirect Government received Wideband Global Satcom (WGS) certification for the company’s 9-Series Defense portfolio of satellite routers and line cards operating on Evolution 3.4 software. The 9-Series Defense products underwent evaluation and testing as part of the U.S. Army’s certification process.

The new Army certification (18-004), along with certification 18-001, confirms that all Evolution 3.4 hardware and software will operate on the WGS constellation with no performance certification restrictions. The certification includes the 900 Satellite Router board, 9350 Satellite Router, the 950mp, 9050 OM, Tactical Hub and DLC-T and DLC-R line cards.

“The new WGS certification validates our 9-Series Defense line and Evolution 3.4 as the ‘go to’ communications solutions for military communications requirements worldwide, and we are committed to play a part in keeping the military connected as they defend our nation,” said iDirect Government President John Ratigan. “The WGS certification confirms what our customers know — that we are dedicated to delivering high-quality military satellite communications solutions to ensure that those deployed in the field have critical clear lines of communication needed for mission success and system reliability. This newest certification highlights the effort of our engineers who have worked to bring the latest technology to the market, earning this recognition.”
