ST Engineering iDirect Announces Wideband Global Satcom Certification

ST Engineering iDirect Announces Wideband Global Satcom Certification of its Newtec MDM9000 Satellite Modem

The MDM9000 is now certified to be used in a wide range of fixed and mobile government and defense applications

Herndon, Va., March 10, 2020 – ST Engineering iDirect, a company of ST Engineering North America, today announced that its Newtec MDM9000 modem has received the Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) Certification. This expands its portfolio of WGS-certified solutions, which include the iDirect Evolution Defense platform, Tactical Hub, and 9-Series family of modems.

Designed to support a wide range of fixed and mobile government and defense applications, the field-proven MDM9000 modem is now one of the most powerful DVB-S2X modems operating on the WGS constellation. Its flexibility and efficiency open up new capabilities for high-speed data links, complementing existing WGS-certified Evolution Defense solutions.

The MDM9000 is ideal for aggregating data – from sensor data to video footage – to be sent back to a central location, as well as any other applications requiring point-to-point, dedicated links. In addition, its bulk encryption module provides 256-bit AES link encryption on both content and management layers to provide the security that is paramount in military operations.

“Our latest WGS certification marks another significant milestone in our efforts to deliver military-grade communications solutions which can provide the bandwidth, flexibility and security required by global militaries to carry out missions successfully and reliably,” said Koen Willems, Head of International Government Satcom at ST Engineering iDirect. “We are proud that the modem has passed the stringent evaluation and testing of the certification process and can join our vast portfolio of accredited government and defense solutions.”

The WGS system is a constellation of highly capable military communications satellites used by the United States of Department of Defense (DoD), Canada Department of National Defence, Australian Department of Defence, as well as other partner countries.

As the backbone of the U.S. military's global satellite communications, WGS provides flexible, high-capacity communications for the nation's war fighters through procurement and operation of the satellite constellation and the associated control systems. WGS provides worldwide flexible, high data rate and long-haul communications for war fighters, government agencies, and international partners.

This WGS certification highlights ST Engineering iDirect’s ability to provide the highest quality levels of design, development, production, delivery, installation, and maintenance of information and communications technology products, including hardware, software and services.

The MDM9000 modem, along with the entire ST Engineering iDirect portfolio, will be showcased at SATELLITE 2020 from 9 to 12 March 2020 in Washington, DC, ST Engineering iDirect stand 1501.
