Herndon, VA, August 27, 2012 – The U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) is using L-3 GCS Hawkeye™ III Lite 1.2M and Hawkeye III™ 2.0M VSAT terminals equipped with iConnex e800 satellite router boards from iDirect Government Technologies (iGT) to support the Special Operations Forces Deployable Node-Family of Terminals (SDN-Lite FoT) program.

The iGT iConnex boards are smaller in size and support data, voice and video connectivity in highly mobile military applications, including mobile platforms carried by forward-deployed troops. The iConnex boards feature high-speed data transmission, increased bandwidth capacity and higher network availability.

“We are pleased to partner with L-3 GCS on the SDN-Lite FoT program, providing our troops access to one of the most advanced and secure satellite communications networks available,” said John Ratigan, iGT President.

Bob Jacobson, President of L-3 GCS, added, “iGT and L-3 GCS continue to have a winning relationship and a common goal of developing high-quality, leading-edge satellite communications technologies for our troops.”
