Gilat Satellite Networks has announced that the US Department of Defense awarded another $5 million order to one of the company’s US-based subsidiaries, DataPath. This additional order is for DKET 3421 terminals, transportable satcom hubs that deliver the operational flexibility, capacity, connectivity, and control required to ensure success anywhere in the world.


The DKET 3421 is an innovative solution to customers’ needs for a high-quality, reliable terminal for mission-critical communications. The field-proven DKET 3421 terminal supports multi-carrier operations with a scalable modem architecture (up to 32 modems.) Weighing under 5000 lbs. with a reduced footprint, the DKET 3421 can be easily moved by a forklift. Deploying in less than three hours, the DKET 3421 provides a satellite network hub in the form of a single-skid with the flexibility to leverage available satellite assets.


“We are pleased to receive yet another order for our revolutionary DKET 3421 from our valued military/government customer.  This new order underscores the trust and confidence placed in the company and our capability to deliver mission-critical solutions that meet our customer’s stringent requirements,” said Barry W. Botts, Vice President, Sales and Business Development for DataPath.  “This order further demonstrates our ability to provide reliable, easily transportable, and high-performance network hubs to meet the growing needs of our customers.
