US Army orders additional MobiLink COTM from DataPath

The mSAT-C2V has a very low-profile antenna that eliminates interference with other systems on a vehicle

By CBR Staff Writer

US Army has ordered additional MobiLink Technologies communications on-the-move systems from DataPath, a provider of satellite and wireless communications networks, to support operations in Iraq.

The MobiLink Technologies communications on-the-move (COTM) system from DataPath was tested in Iraq in late 2008 and early 2009 and is now an operational system that quickly installs in mine resistant ambush protected vehicles.

Eight additional COTM systems as well as field technical support and other services have been procured through exercised options under an existing delivery order.

According to DataPath, this particular version of MobiLink, the mSAT-C2V for command and control vehicles, features a very low-profile antenna that eliminates interference with other systems on a vehicle and ensures a command vehicle is not easily identifiable. The entire system can also be easily transferred from one vehicle to another, particularly if mounting apparatus is pre-installed in a number of vehicles.

Steve Lindeman, vice president of business operations at DataPath, said: The driving concern of this effort by the Army is improving situational awareness and mission effectiveness of forward-deployed warfighters. With the technology to provide COTM capabilities available immediately at reasonable cost, military commanders are moving now to get COTM into the hands of their forces.
