DataPath, a provider of satellite and communications network services, has won a $56 million contract with the U.S. Army for a network project.

The deal could be extended to as long as four years and be worth as much as $270 million, the company said in a statement.

Under the contract, DataPath will provide repairs, resetting and upgrades for transportable terminals and satellite communications trucks. The gear is part of the Army’s Warfighter Information Network-Tactical program.

DataPath has worked with the Army on the network since 2004, providing more than 800 portable terminals, software, services and satellite communication trucks. The network is designed to deliver what DataPath calls “high-bandwidth” connectivity to forward-operating military bases.

"DataPath has worked side-by-side with the U.S. military to deliver the network to the battlefield, and with this latest agreement we continue to ensure that warfighters have reliable broadband communications near the frontlines," said Dave Helfgott, president and chief operating officer of DataPath.
