ViaSat Aids Army in Satellite Network Upgrade

Carlsbad-based ViaSat Inc. announced on April 11 that it received a $9.3 million contract from Northrop Grumman Corp. to improve performance for a satellite network.

Northrop Grumman is acting as the system integrator for the U.S. Army’s Blue Force Tracking satellite network , a digital command and control system that communicates battle information directly to soldiers using Global Positioning System signals.

ViaSat will provide a prototype network operations center, a satellite ground station hub and new transceiver prototypes for aircraft and land vehicles.

Satellite communications company ViaSat is traded on the Nasdaq as VSAT and closed April 10 at $32.35, down 46 cents from the previous session.
