Cobham Selected by MIL-SAT Communications for US Navy Satellite Communications Contract


MIL-SAT Communications, a long time distributor of Cobham’s Sea Tel satellite terminal range, has selected the Sea Tel 2.4 meter 9797B marine stabilized satellite communication terminals to fulfil a recently-awarded US Navy contract. More than 2,000 similar Sea Tel products have been shipped to customers worldwide from Cobham Antenna Systems, in Concord.


The $11.9 million firm-fixed price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract awarded to MIL-SAT by the US Navy requires a supply of Sea Tel antenna systems for the Force Training Assessment Department at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Corona Division. This contract’s value to Cobham is not being disclosed.

"We look forward to supplying these highly reliable 9797B VSAT antenna systems to the Navy for their fleet training programs," said Fred Cahill, Vice President of Cobham Antenna Systems.


"MIL-SAT would like to thank the US Navy for selecting us," said Lynn Oldham, Director of Operations of MIL-SAT. "We look forward to providing them with Cobham’s industry leading Sea Tel 9797B systems over the next several years."


Sea Tel products will be assembled at and shipped from Concord, California to MIL-SAT in Surrey, Virginia, for final integration, and the work performed under this contract and is expected to be completed by September 2016.
