The US Army Combat Service Support (CSS) group’s role is to man, arm, fuel, fix, and move the force. CSS forces deployed in Iraq often needed to deliver requisitions for parts or supplies by courier to a location from which they could be transmitted electronically. These deliveries frequently meant driving through hostile terrain, exposing them to possible enemy ambush. The Army needed a reliable communications system that would help reduce or eliminate the need to deliver requisitions or data in person.

CSS SATCOM selected the iDirect VSAT technology combined with the AVL TracStar auto acquisition antenna. This solution was chosen based on its ease of deployment and management, broadband transmission speed, the ability to support multiple Virtual LANs (VLANs) on a single link, cost effective bandwidth delivery and QoS support of applications such as VoIP and VTC. FIPS140-2 was also a critical selection criteria.
