Navy Exchange Service Command's Telecommunications Program Office Selects ViaSat Inc. for Managed Wi-Fi Internet and Voice Services

Navy Exchange Service Command's Telecommunications Program Office, or NEXCOM TPO has selected ViaSat Inc. to upgrade its wireless internet and voice services and provide an enterprise-wide Wi-Fi system to Navy Morale, Welfare and Recreation, or MWR, facilities, Unaccompanied Housing, or UH, Navy Lodges and Navy Gateway Inns & Suites, or NGIS. ViaSat's managed Wi-Fi services will provide support for an increased number of wireless devices per access point mitigating interference, improving range, performance and ability for end-users to connect to the network.

TEKEVER Group and ViaSat Enters into Strategic Alliance to Expand the Civilian Use of Unmanned Aircraft System Platforms

The TEKEVER Group and ViaSat entered into a strategic alliance aimed at expanding the civilian use of unmanned aircraft system (UAS) platforms, also commonly known as drones, with advanced satellite communications. The companies are collaborating by adding ViaSat's communication technologies onto TEKEVER's UAS platforms to push the boundaries of UAS range in civilian beyond line of sight (BLOS) applications, officials say. Research and development (R&D) activities will combine TEKEVER platforms and ViaSat hardware to develop communication systems for current and next-generation civilian drone applications. The products that will be developed through the TEKEVER and ViaSat strategic alliance will expand the range of civilian service applications for drone usage through enabling smaller platforms and longer missions. The first use cases that will be demonstrated include maritime monitoring and critical infrastructure surveillance.
