Cubic receives order from GATR Technologies to support US Marine Corps program
Cubic Global Defense, a business unit of San Diego, CA-based Cubic Corporation, announced on October 6 that its subsidiary DTECH LABS received an initial order amount of $2.7 million from GATR Technologies, a manufacturer of deployable inflatable satellite communication terminals. DTECH will provide Mobile, Modular, Micro-Single Enclave (M3-SE) baseband equipment that is paired to GATR Technologies’ portable 2.4m Inflatable Satellite Antenna (ISA), making this solution a program of record (type designator AN/TSC-212) for the U.S. Marine Corps High Bandwidth Signals Intelligence Palletized Terminal (HBSI-PT) program. Receipt of this order ensures an ongoing partnership with GATR Technologies for the three- to five-year life cycle program of record with the U.S. Marine Corps.
DTECH’s M3-SE baseband consists of three network enclaves with a black core transport system, which provides high capacity voice, video and data for 10-36 users operating in a signals intelligence environment through any IP-based wireless or wired transmission system. The M3-SE baseband equipment provides a durable and dependable communications solution that minimizes size, weight and power requirements, which along with the GATR’s light-weight ISA, reduces the embarkation footprint and improves deployability and ease of use as the whole system packs into five cases, weighing less than 375 pounds total.
“We strive to provide the most efficient and effective communication solutions to our customers and we are extremely proud to be a part of the U.S. Marine Corps program supporting our customer GATR Technologies,” said Michael Barthlow, vice president of secure networking, Cubic Global Defense. “With our innovative offerings, we will continue partnering with our customers to provide the best solutions for military forces worldwide.”
DTECH was acquired by Cubic in 2014 to expand Cubic’s offering in secure communications for C4ISR networking capabilities.
