In order to provide the highest level of service, GES designed, developed, and deployed the DRS Global Communications Network (GCN), which provides terrestrial backhaul, supporting satellite connectivity anywhere on Earth between 65° North by 65° South latitudes. By leveraging partnerships with six strategically located teleport locations, the GCN can provide uplink and downlink connectivity for any satellite in orbit and backhaul the satellite data feeds over a secure 2.4 gigabit transcontinental terrestrial backbone to connect to our customer’s sites. The GCN is an innovative that took USSOCOM’s core requirements, and developed an agile, scalable, value-add solution designed to meet the SATCOM terrestrial backhaul needs of all of our customers. The GCN has been the centerpiece of numerous contracts, with a total to-date billing of over $1 billion in the last five years.
