Integral Systems Inc. today announced that its SATCOM Solutions division has been awarded a $10 million, five-year, Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to modernize the United States Coast Guard’s (USCG) satellite communications (SATCOM) network for the service’s large cutters.

Integral Systems provides integrated technology solutions for satellite communications-interfaced systems. Per the agreement, the company’s SATCOM Solutions division will be the primary contractor on the program, transitioning the USCG to a commercial-based, advanced Ku-band system, designed to enhance network reliability, flexibility and scalability.

The 117MT Ku-band Maritime Antenna System includes SATCOM Solutions’ innovative, electromagnetic compatible (EMC) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) management system.

“We developed our Ku-band maritime antenna systems to enable the most advanced communications for commercial, military, homeland security and civil government operations,” Steve Gizinski, general manager of Integral Systems’ SATCOM Solutions Division stated in the press release. “As a result of this effort, the U.S. Coast Guard will field one of the most modern maritime broadband SATCOM networks, which will help it better protect the shores and vital waterways of the United States.”

Earlier this year, Integral Systems acquired CVG Inc. and Avtec Systems Inc., which are now operating as Integral Systems’ SATCOM Solutions division.
