ViaSat Satellite Ground
Systems has received a contract in excess of $3 million from Honeywell Space
Systems in Clearwater, Florida for four mobile S-Band Tracking and
Telemetry/UHF-Band Command Destruct integrated antenna systems.
The Range
Safety System (RSS) for the Alaska Aerospace Development Corporation (AADC)
Kodiak Launch Complex tracks launch vehicle data, and provides ground
controllers with the ability to terminate the flight should problems arise.

The Kodiak location launches all types of commercial launch vehicles and
military rockets.
The AADC requires range data and command control equipment
to provide real time information to range users and to perform range safety
The primary responsibility of the RSS is to provide positive
control of the launch vehicle for public safety.

These tracking and telemetry systems combine the ability to receive an
S-band telemetry data signal with the ability to transmit high-power UHF
Command Destruct tones.
Each of the four antenna systems consists of a
5.4-meter reflector, elevation over azimuth pedestal, and a specialized
Telemetry Tracking/UHF feed.
The complete system includes a uniquely designed
trailer/mounting base that provides full roadworthy towing as well as a stable
tracking platform.

The AADC was established in 1991 to develop Alaska based economic and
technical opportunities in the aerospace industry.
The Kodiak Launch Complex
is a dual use spaceport for commercial and government vehicles for sub-orbital
and orbital trajectories over a wide range of launch azimuths.
The missions
being flown from this spaceport cover a range from remote sensing and
communications to missile defense technology demonstrators and testing.

ViaSat Inc. produces advanced digital satellite
telecommunications and wireless signal processing equipment for commercial and
government markets.
ViaSat has a full line of VSAT products for data and
voice applications, and is rapidly building market share in Ka-band satellite
systems, from user terminals to large gateways for both geosynchronous and low
earth orbit systems.
Other products include information security devices,
tactical communication radios, and communication simulators.
Along with its
headquarters in Carlsbad, CA, ViaSat has divisions located in Norcross, GA,
and Clarksburg, MD.
Additional field offices are located in Boston, MA, the
United Kingdom, Australia, Chile, China, and India.
