Defense Satellite Communications: DOD Needs Additional Information to Improve Procurements
Cristina Chaplain (au)
The Department of Defense (DOD) depends on commercial satellite communications (SATCOM) to support a variety of critical mission needs, from unmanned aerial vehicles and intelligence to voice and data for military personnel. In FY 2011, DOD spent over $1 billion leasing commercial SATCOM. Some major DOD users of commercial satellite bandwidth were dissatisfied with the Defense Information Systems Agencyńˇ╗s (DISAńˇ╗s) acquisition process, seeing it as too costly and lengthy. They also indicated that the contacts used were too inflexible. This report (1) assesses the extent to which DOD efficiently procures bandwidth; (2) analyzes the extent to which DOD has identified its future SATCOM requirements using DOD and commercial satellite services, as well as how those requirements will be met; and (3) identifies the steps DOD is taking to improve its procurements of commercial SATCOM. Table and figure. This is a print on demand report.
