Cubic to Provide Inflatable Satcom Terminals to US Special Operations Command

Cubic Mission Solutions (CMS) has received a follow-on, single-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) contract with a ceiling of $172 million from US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to deliver GATR inflatable SATCOM terminals and baseband communications equipment in support of special operations forces (SOF) communications requirements.

Cubic is an established and trusted partner for USSOCOM. They have been providing special operations forces with leading-edge capabilities that support customer’s expeditionary and tactical needs, said Mike Twyman, president of Cubic Missions Solutions.

The contract consists of five one-year ordering periods for the procurement of Cubic’s 1.2-meter and 2.4-meter GATR inflatable satellite communications terminals. Cubic’s technology not only enables the movement of data, but it also allows for pre-processing of data and rapid sharing of processed information, which is essential to the Hyper Enabled Operator and allows for more informed and timely decision making.
