Duluth, Ga. — April 22, 2008 — DataPath, Inc., a leading provider of satellite and wireless communications networks around the world, has been selected by ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT) to provide the MaxView Network Management System for managing and automating the nine-meter AN/GSC-70(V)1 Ka Band Satellite Transmit and Receive Systems (Ka-STARS) under contract to the U.S. Army Program Manager, Defense Communications and Army Transmission Systems (PM-DCATS).
“With ITT’s fielding of the AN/GSC-70 earth terminals, MaxView software enhances its reputation as the industry standard for managing critical, complex government communications systems,” said Dr. Clay Stanek, vice president and general manager of DataPath’s MaxView Software Solutions division. “Deployed for DISA teleports, the U.S. Army’s DKET program and Joint Network Node/WIN T program, the U.S. Marine Corps’ SWAN program and other critical networks, MaxView is a proven, adaptable solution for maximizing network control.”
