ITT selects DataPath’s MaxView for U.S. Army Ka-STARS program

ITT Corp. officials in White Plains, N.Y., required a system for managing satellite transmissions sent to and from U.S. Army personnel. They partnered with DataPath Inc., a provider of satellite and wireless communications networks in Duluth, Ga., to gain such a system. DataPath is under contract to deliver its MaxView network-management system to the U.S. Army Program Manager, Defense Communications and Army Transmission Systems (PM-DCATS). Army personnel will use the MaxView system to manage and automate the nine-meter AN/GSC-70(V)1 Ka Band Satellite Transmit and Receive Systems (Ka-STARS). MaxView software is designed for managing critical, complex government communications systems, says Dr. Clay Stanek, vice president and general manager of DataPath’s MaxView Software Solutions division. “Deployed for DISA teleports, the U.S. Army’s DKET program and Joint Network Node/WIN-T program, the U.S. Marine Corps’ SWAN program and other critical networks, MaxView is a proven, adaptable solution for maximizing network control.” The AN/GSC-70(V) will operate over the Wideband Global Satellite system to provide high-bandwidth communication capability in support of military operations worldwide. The system supplements limited military X-band capacity with Ka-band capacity. MaxView adapts to evolving networks, functioning as either the network “operating environment,” the network manager-of-managers, or an element control-and-automation system.
