DataPath Wins $1.7 Million US Air Force Contract
DataPath, a provider of satellite and wireless communications networks, has won a $1.7 million contract to provide field services support for the Ramstein Air Base satellite communications teleport operated by the US Air Force.
The teleport is a vital Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) hub for military communications. It links military X band networks with commercial Ku band networks to enhance overall bandwidth capacity and provide network-centric, high-bandwidth capabilities to US forces. DataPath installed the teleport and has supported it for seven years.
Steve Lindeman, vice president of business operations at DataPath, said: "Our experts onsite at Ramstein have provided quality service working alongside the US Air Force since the teleport was established. We are very proud of our role in building and supporting the DISA teleport network."
