General Dynamics' mission systems business has awardedÂ PathFinder DigitalÂ a follow-on contract to manufactureÂ vehicle-mounted satellite communications terminals designed to supportÂ U.S. ArmyÂ tactical signals intelligence and electronic warfare missions.
PathFinder said Tuesday it will continue to supplyÂ the military service'sÂ Prophet ProgramÂ withÂ BAT-750 MVSATs, as well asÂ reset or update BAT-750Â terminalsÂ with aÂ control technology,Â EMI filters and other features meant to reduce antenna vibration when usedÂ on military mine resistant ambush protected vehicles in challenging terrains.
The company also produces BAT-1214 and BAT-850 terminals, which operate in Ka, Ku and X band frequencies.
General Dynamics initially askedÂ PathFinder to supply MVSAT platforms for the Prophet initiative in 2010.
Pathfinder developed triband mobile ground system VSATs for deployment on the Army's Trojan data network andÂ Warfighter InformationÂ Network-Tactical.
