The Department of Defense continues to modernize its tactical communications infrastructure with additional orders for the ViaSat Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT) LinkWayS2 IP Network Modem System.

LinkWayS2 modems are backward compatible with legacy LinkWay systems and these modems will replace LinkWay2100 series hardware, setting the stage for network-wide transitions to the LinkWay S2 system. The DoD has based the majority of its tactical network on LinkWay systems since 2003.

The LinkWay updates provide forward looking capabilities and features, including DoD-approved TRANSEC, increased transmission throughput, and advanced modulation and forward error correction using open standards-based Turbo coding. Also included are features that enable the LinkWayS2 system for communications on-the-move .

Based in Carlsbad, California, ViaSat delivers fast, secure communications, Internet, and network access to virtually any location for consumers, governments, enterprise, and the military.
