NATO and Xantic sign contract for Inmarsat Services


NATO and Xantic sign contract for Inmarsat Services

Xantic has signed a agreement with the NATO Consultation, Command & Control Agency (NC3A). Under the terms of the contract, Xantic will deliver services in support of NATO HQ Sarajevo in Bosnia, KFOR in Kosovo, ISAF in Afghanistan and the NATO Training Mission in Iraq. Xantic is a provider of satellite communications.

The Global Area Network (GAN) and Regional BGAN services will provide NATO operations with vital communications for liaison and reconnaissance teams wherever permanent Communication & Information Systems capabilities are inappropriate. The mobility of the satcom terminals makes them ideal for moving to any theatre where an urgent need for interim communications arises.

NC3A originally tendered a Request for Quotation (RFQ) to Xantic and several other international satcom companies in possession of a so-called ‘Basic Ordering Agreement’ (BOA). These are acquisition agreements between NC3A and carefully selected suppliers of products and/or services, without which companies cannot sign contracts with NATO. Despite stiff competition, Xantic was chosen as the supplier and a contract agreed until the end of 2008.

According to Col. Dan Fancher (NC3A / Acquisition), Xantic has long been a willing supplier of mobile satellite services. “NATO and the NC3A are excited about continuing this relationship in the years ahead. The introduction of BGAN services during the next calendar year will be a tremendous step forward in delivering on-the-pause secure voice and data services to the deployed forces.”
