PARIS (BNS): Thales has been awarded a contract to supply the Qatar armed forces with a military satellite communications system.

The ground segment supplied by Thales will provide Qatari ground and naval forces with a long-range communications capability to enhance national security and protect vital interests.

Satellite communication (satcom) systems are an important component of a military force’s voice and data communications capability in the theatre of operations.

The military satcom network complements existing military radio communications systems. As a consequence, Thales will supply the systems needed to transmit and receive communications via satellite, and to process data on the ground.

The solution is built around Thales's high-performance System 21 technology to provide secure, high-data-rate transmissions. This fully proven system has been selected by several NATO countries.

The Network Operations Centre, also provided by Thales, will be used for planning and managing the complete system, which will be operated by the Qatari armed forces.

The solution will be interoperable with the other communications systems in service within the Qatar Armed Forces, including combat radios and fixed networks.

The solution will be delivered on a turnkey basis, and integrated teams will be set up to ensure the transfer of skills from the Company to the customer, Thales said in a statement.
