August 23, 2012


The U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) is using L-3 GCS Hawkeye™ III Lite 1.2M and Hawkeye III™ 2.0M VSAT terminals equipped with iConnex e800 satellite router boards from iDirect Government Technologies (iGT) to support the Special Operations Forces Deployable Node-Family of Terminals (SDN-Lite FoT) program.

The iConnex boards are smaller in size and support data, voice and video connectivity in highly mobile military applications, including mobile platforms carried by forward-deployed troops. The iConnex boards feature high-speed data transmission, increased bandwidth capacity and higher network availability.

“We are pleased to partner with L-3 GCS on the SDN-Lite FoT program, providing our troops access to one of the most advanced and secure satellite communications networks available,” said John Ratigan, President of iDirect Government Technologies (iGT).

Bob Jacobson, President of L-3 GCS, added, “iGT and L-3 GCS continue to have a winning relationship and a common goal of developing high-quality, leading-edge satellite communications technologies for our troops.”
