SES Enables Danish Defence Wideband Global Satcom System Connectivity

SES S.A. reports it will provide two anchor stations for the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO). Under the agreement, SES Techcom Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SES, will provision and maintain two Wideband Global Satcom system (WGS) anchor stations - one in X-band and one in Ka-band.

This will enable the Danish armed forces to communicate through the system, which provides flexible, high-capacity communications for defence operations through the associated satellite constellation and control systems.

SES was awarded the contracts on the basis of its experience in providing satellite communication anchor stations, the associated WGS certification process and overall life-cycle cost criteria.

The Danish forces will join other nations partnering with the US in the WGS program and thus offer the US State Department satellite-based communication services to users, including marines, soldiers, sailors, airmen and the White House Communications Agency.

"Our satellite communication solutions have a proud history of providing high-quality, accurate, real-time information for military applications," said Gerhard Bethscheider, Managing Director at SES Techcom Services.

"It is this proven expertise and competence which led to us being awarded the two contracts, which will enable the Danish military to achieve high data rates and long-haul communications across the globe."

Captain (Navy) Kim B. Meier, Director Air Force Systems at DALO added, "We are pleased to partner with SES Techcom Services. The new WGS anchor stations will greatly enhance our military's global satellite communications."
