SES Government Solutions Secures Contract for Thule Tracking Station Digital Signal 3 Service

SES Government Solutions has been awarded the Thule Tracking Station Digital Signal 3 (DS3) Service contract to continue to provide the U.S. Government with critical communications capabilities. The service supports a global network that enables national-level missile warning, space surveillance, space control, and satellite command and control. The service consists of a one-year base period, with four one-year option periods for a total contract value of over USD 10 million. The solution connects key sensors to operations centers for missile defense missions and serves Air Force Space Command (AFSPC), United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM), and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). The contract provides Air Force Space Command with dedicated communications between Thule Air Base in Greenland and Schriever Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The solution includes commercial satellite bandwidth, contractor-provided hub equipment, teleport service and antennas. Thule’s arctic environment, unpredictable weather patterns, and near-horizon location provide unique technical and logistical challenges. SES GS continues to provide a robust communications solution to overcome these challenging conditions.

SES Government Solutions and O3b Networks Limited has announced that they have jointly completed the first O3b managed services installation for NOAA Worldwide Satellite Communications Systems II 's National Weather Service Office (NWSO) at Pago Pago, American Samoa. This remote station is responsible for providing critically important tropical weather alerts and cyclone warning information to a large part of the Pacific.

Once the hardware was installed, the team supported the end-to-end service testing.
