Boeing chosen for U.S. government’s COMSATCOM services acquisition program

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Boeing Commercial Satellite Services has been approved as a service provider for the Future COMSATCOM Services Acquisition program.

With this approval by the Defense Information Systems Agency and General Services Administration, Boeing is authorized to provide U.S. government customers satellite communications services through a variety of fixed and mobile transponded and subscription services.

Military-unique services such as UHF and Yahsat’s military Ka-band, commercial services in the Ku and Ka bands, and Inmarsat L-band and Thuraya L-band are examples of service offerings Boeing may provide through subscription agreements.

“This program gives Boeing another way to provide customers with exceptional satellite communication services using a variety of frequencies, including Inmarsat-5 Ka-band services,” said Craig Cooning, CEO of Boeing Satellite Systems International. “Boeing continues to support the government’s increasing need for satellite communications bandwidth.”

Customers can procure these services under Boeing’s GSA Schedule 70 contract.

Boeing Commercial Satellite Services, a unit of Boeing Satellite Systems International, works with owners of active satellite systems to market available bandwidth to prospective customers and to include hosted payloads on spacecraft. Boeing’s enterprisewide technology portfolio and expertise in government communications missions allow the company to provide tailored commercial solutions to meet specific customer needs.
