NIC4 Awarded VSAT Modernization Effort Contract For the National Guard Bureau (NGB)

Agreement Includes Joint Incident Site Communications Capability (JISCC) Block 2E (B2E) 

TAMPA, FL, MARCH 3, 2020 NIC4 Inc., a division of Network Innovations, Inc. specializing in the development and delivery of turn-key satcom solutions, has been awarded a Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) modernization and support contract for the National Guard Bureau (NGB).

The Joint Incident Site Communications Capability (JISCC) Block 2E (B2E) is a modernization effort stemming from JISCC Block 2 and Block 2C. Under the terms of the agreement, NIC4 will replace existing dated VSAT terminals with fully integrated 1.2m Auto-acquire systems. NIC4, along with its strategic partners — ADS, Inc., Sat-Lite Technologies and Terrasat Communications, Inc. — will provide the JISCC B2E program with a solution that is both innovative and of tremendous value.

This contract gives the National Guard the ability to utilize the new JISCC B2E VSAT terminals on the already contracted NIC4 MAVERICK VSAT Network. NIC4 will provide Tier 1 and Tier 2 Technical Support for both the satellite service and VSAT hardware. Utilizing a single vendor for support allows for a streamlined and efficient process versus having to deal with multiple vendors for technical support.

NIC4 has a trusted reputation for providing mission critical communication solutions to U.S. Government Agencies and other DOD entities. NIC4 will contribute an exceptional level of expertise to this program through its highly trained team, strong industry relationships, access to a global network of industry professionals, and expanded access to an ever-growing innovative solutions portfolio.
