Selex Goes With ViaSat For NATO Communications

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Selex Elsag selected ViaSat to provide X-band antennas and the MD-1366 Enhanced Bandwidth Efficient Modem (EBEM) to expand NATO static ground satellite communications in Belgium and Italy, and upgrade services in Greece and Turkey.

The value of the contract is in excess of $10 million. The order is for multiple 16-meter and 11.3-meter X-band earth stations, ViaSat MD-1366 modems, and services. The new terminals are scheduled to be installed and commissioned at NATO European sites with delivery starting by end of calendar 2012.

The MD-1366 EBEM replaces legacy, FDMA modems and ensures future interoperability with joint, allied, and coalition forces, a key objective of the U.S. Army WIN-T program and other NATO nation partners.

The MD-1366 is the industry’s only DSCS and WGS certified, fully STANAG 4486 ed.3 compliant modem. The modem eliminates the need for a separate Inline Network Encryptor (INE) with FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certified AES-256 bulk encryption.
