TrustComm Announces New Ownership, Furthering Its Commitment to COMSATCOM
Requirements of U.S. Department of Defense
--Company also selected as subcontractor for U.S. Army’s GTACS award--
STAFFORD, Va. -- April 16, 2013
TrustComm Inc., the premier small-business provider of secure COMSATCOM
solutions to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), today announced it has
completed its reorganization under new ownership.
TrustComm was acquired by the American investor group Global Secure Networks
Inc. (GSN). The TrustComm company name will be retained. The GSN investor
group is led by Bob Roe, who has served as TrustComm’s CEO since March 2012.
Roe has more than 35 years experience in government and commercial satcom,
including 22 years in the U.S. Navy as a communications and intelligence
The GSN equity infusion is enabling TrustComm to expand its operations and
continue its high level of professional service to U.S. government agencies.
From its secure teleport and network operations center (S-NOC) at Ellington
Field Base in Houston, TrustComm has successfully deployed a wide range of
managed satellite networking solutions to many government agencies and
commercial enterprises since 1999. TrustComm recently opened its new corporate
headquarters with an expanded executive team and fully redundant S-NOC at the
Quantico Corporate Center in Stafford, Va.
TrustComm helps fulfill U.S. Army’s GTACS contract
TrustComm today also announced it will serve as a subcontractor to Science
Applications International Corporation (SAIC; NYSE: SAI) in its fulfillment of
the Global Tactical Advanced Communications Systems and Services (GTACS) IDIQ
multiple-award contract from the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for
Command, Control and Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T). The award enables SAIC
to compete for task orders under the five-year contract, which has a total
value of $10 billion.
“Finalizing our new ownership is the latest major step in the transformation
of TrustComm into the foremost, dedicated provider of secure government
COMSATCOM solutions,” Roe said. “Going forward, we expect to continue our
expansion to maintain our strict adherence to the DoD’s demanding
information-assurance and operational-security requirements.”
He concluded, “Working with SAIC to help meet the U.S. Army’s secure COMSATCOM
needs under the GTACS contract provides us with a key opportunity to deliver
world-class support to PEO C3T.”
