4 August 2016: Inmarsat is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Inmarsat Government, has been issued modification P00001 to lift the stop-work order issued due to a bid protest filed on the initial award. Inmarsat Government remains the awardee on the single award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract issued against solicitation HC1013-14-R-0004 announced Sept. 8, 2015. This contract supports the U.S Navy’s Commercial Broadband Satellite Program (CBSP) Satellite Services Contract (CSSC). The single award consists of a base one-year period with four one-year option periods through 2021.
Under the contract, Inmarsat Government will support the U.S. Navy’s requirement to acquire worldwide commercial telecommunication services, to include satellite capacity for mobile and fixed satellite transceivers on maritime, airborne and ground platforms, as well as CT services, backhaul connectivity, monitoring and control and operations. CSSC will augment government-owned and operated telecommunication systems, providing significant improvement in data throughput and capacity redundancy to military satellite communications to meet critical mission requirements.
“We understand that information dominance must be maintained in support of the service men and women; winning this contract demonstrates the U.S. government’s trust in Inmarsat Government’s ability to deliver flexible solutions that meet the Navy’s specific mission-critical communication requirements cost-effectively,” said Susan Miller, Inmarsat Government President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Inmarsat Government will deliver robust and globally accessible satellite capability that can augment military satellite systems when needed, while providing the protection, resiliency and worldwide portability for military operations without service interruption,” said Gabe Venturi, Inmarsat Government Chief Commercial Officer.
