Viasat Inc. reported Dec. 4 that the U.S. Army has certified one of the company’s modems — the Mobile Broadband Router 4020 — for use on the military’s Wideband Global SATCOM network. The MBR-4020 is a dual-band, multi-mode software-defined modem.

The Army Forces Strategic Command (ARSTRAT) conducts the certification.

“Obtaining ARSTRAT certification for the MBR-4020 modem demonstrates our ability to rapidly deliver solutions that can seamlessly integrate into a hybrid adaptive network architecture to meet rapidly evolving in-flight mission and communications needs,” said Ken Peterman, president of Viasat’s Government Systems unit, in a prepared statement.

Viasat (Nasdaq: VSAT) is based in Carlsbad.
