CARLSBAD, Calif., 20 April 2010. ViaSat Inc. won an additional order valued at more than $6.6 million for Multifunctional Information Distribution System - Low Volume Terminals (MIDS-LVT) from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), San Diego. These orders augment the $21.5 million Lot 11 delivery order previously announced by ViaSat as part of the MIDS annual Lot procurements.

This new Lot 11 add-on is for LVT(1), LVT(4) and LVT(11) terminals for the Republic of Turkey via Foreign Military Sales (FMS) supporting the modernization of naval platforms, C-130s, and Ground Air Defense Systems. These MIDS-LVT units will begin delivery in March of 2011.

MIDS-LVT is part of a tactical radio system (non-satellite) that collects data from many sources and displays an electronic overview of the battlefield using secure, high-capacity, jam-resistant, digital data and voice.

The system is used by the U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, and U.S. Army, as well as the military forces of other nations. ViaSat is one of two U.S. government-qualified manufacturers of Link 16 MIDS terminals.
