The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) needs four domestic connectivity satellite terminals.
The terminals will be used to provide a link to support the NZDF’s information exchange requirements.
The system will pass internet protocol (IP) traffic, which the terminals will route to the appropriate terminal directly. The traffic will contain both unencrypted and encrypted IP information and will consist of real traffic such as voice, streaming video and background traffic such as email and data replication.
One terminal will be permanently installed at Papakura military camp.
The other three terminals will need to be portable and must be of a size that allows for transportation by commercial airlines, small light aircraft and helicopters.
The deadline for replies is Thursday, June 11. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 25993.
