Global communications company Viasat Inc. on Wednesday announced the opening of a new office in Aberdeen on the U.S. Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) installation.

This new office will be an important partnering location for Viasat Government Systems employees, enabling teams to deepen customer relationships and continue ongoing work to support the U.S. Army’s network transformation.

Recognized as the U.S. Army’s pre-eminent post for C5ISR (Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance), APG is home to several commands including the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM), Army Futures Command Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) and the Network Cross-Functional Team (N-CFT), Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC), Program Executive Office Command, Control, Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T), Program Executive Office for Intelligence, Electronic Warfare, and Sensors (PEO IEW&S), and the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense, among others.

Viasat is an industry leader providing tactical data links, cybersecurity and military data encryption solutions, as well as satellite communication (SATCOM) technology and services to support the DoD across land, air, maritime, space and cyberspace domains. The Company has been working with the U.S. Army for more than three decades, beginning as a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awardee. The establishment of a Viasat APG office will further enhance Viasat’s collaboration with Army customers and deepen its understanding of the technical and operational needs to support soldiers’ changing missions.

In addition to workspace for Viasat employees, the new APG office includes a lab and warehouse that will support the onsite development, testing, and support of advanced networking and SATCOM capabilities. Viasat is hosting an official opening event at the office today with a select group of invited guests including officials from the Army, industry partners and Harford County officials.
