Inmarsat Government to Provide Internet of Things Satellite Connectivity for US Army Blue Force Tracker Equipment

WASHINGTON – The Inmarsat government announced on November 7 that it won a $410 million, five-year contract extension to provide Internet-of-Things satellite connectivity for the US military’s battlefield tracking equipment.

The contract, awarded by the Defense Information Systems Agency, is for the Army’s Blue Force Tracker Network services.

The Government of Inmarsat, based in Reston, Virginia, is a subsidiary of British communications satellite operator Inmarsat.

Inmarsat will connect the government Blue Force tracker using a new network called Healthy, designed to support IoT services using its existing L-band satellites. This network will provide connectivity between Blue Force Tracker transceivers and satellite ground stations.

Blue Force Tracker devices display custom force tracking information across thousands of army platforms.

The Inmarsat government won a previous contract in 2017 to support the Blue Force tracker network, which has been in operation since 2002. The latest version of Blue Force Tracker has increased network capacity for transferring data, and was designed to be more resilient against electronic warfare attacks. ,
