Company Expects Market for Several Thousand Units

ViaSat announced on 22 May it has received an order from Boeing for its KOR-24A Small Tactical Terminals (STT) for the US Marine Corps (USMC) AV-8B HARRIER fleet as well as international customers. Contract value including all options is approximately $20 million.

The STT was competitively selected based on its capability, product maturity and proven reliability as the only small form factor Link 16 and Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW) compatible aviation terminal fielded in the world. It will enable USMC HARRIERs to better coordinate their activities with other US and allied aircraft, as well as with ground forces using both Link 16 and SRW networks, in order to more rapidly engage enemy targets with reduced risk of fratricide or collateral damage.

"Being selected by Boeing to provide the Link 16 radio for the AV-8B is another big milestone for us," Ken Peterman, President, Government Systems at ViaSat commented. "It is further evidence of the value of our STT product as well as our commercial approach to developing products to provide our warfighters with the capability they need to address their critical gaps with little or no investment necessary by the government customer. This order from Boeing for the HARRIER increases the quantities of STTs either in the field or on order to well over 1,200 units; and we anticipate a market with at least several thousand additional units to follow."
