Satellite equipment company Newtec and the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA) have entered a Basic Ordering Agreement for the swift and cost effective acquisition of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) satellite communications hardware, software, and services.
The Basic Ordering Agreement streamlines the process of acquisition of Newtec's COTS SATCOM products, a boon given the Company's status as a long term partner to NATO-affiliated government and defense organizations.
Newtec's portfolio of COTS products and solutions serve as the building blocks and turnkey systems of satellite networks used by government and defense customers. The large install base of the Company's satellite communications equipment enable government and defense operations to perform a broad range of applications.
The increasing number of airborne ISR missions and complex, bandwidth-intensive data collection equipment have contributed to the rapid growth of transmission rates, making optimization of data and video links optimizers even more important than before.
Newtec responded by designing its solutions to keep on adapting to changing transmission conditions. This ensures the successful delivery of mission critical data despite the degradation of signal quality due to signal fade.
