Boeing Wins Military Broadband Contract

By Tish Drake | August 16, 2007

Boeing said it won a $30 million firm-fixed-price contract to continue providing Boeing Broadband Satcom Network (BBSN) service to the U.S. Air Force Air Mobility Command. BBSN, which is the military version of the now defunct Connexion by Boeing, provides high-speed Internet communications and direct broadcast satellite TV service as a cost effective solution for the U.S. government's aircraft and airborne customers. Supported aircraft include C-32s, C-40s, E-4s and VIP and special air mission aircraft. The total value of the modified contract is $53,608,368. This is the fourth option period and represents the fifth year of service undertaken by the BBSN team. The fifth option period, if exercised, would increase the contract value to nearly $72 million.
