(COMSATCOM) services through the existing CBSP Satellite Services (CSSC II) Contract. CBSP delivers
connectivity between Navy ships (and other terminals) and Navy Designated Points of Presence (NDP). CBSP provides satellite communication (SATCOM) services, monitors the integrity of the end-to-end system, enables
bandwidth management to optimize the use of leased SATCOM capabilities, and accounts for security and information assurance (IA) requirements in support of Naval operations. Additionally, the CBSP mission is
dynamic, with rapid resource alignment to support mobility requirements. As a separate effort, the Navy procures, installs, and maintains the end user terminals.
In support of the U.S. Navy’s COMSATCOM requirements, the objective of the CSSC II is to acquire worldwide
commercial telecommunications services, to include satellite capacity in C, Ku, Ka, and/or X-band, for mobile and fixed satellite transceivers on maritime, airborne, and ground platforms, as well as commercial teleport (CT) services, backhaul connectivity, monitoring and control, and operations. The purpose of “and/or” with regard to the
identified bands (C-band, X-band, Ku-band and/or Ka-band) refers to a ‘combination of all of the identified/listed bands’. However, as this is an IDIQ contract, the specific band, operating region to be covered, and the bandwidth (MHz) to be provided during the period of performance (PoP) will be delineated in the individual task orders. CSSC II will augment Government-owned and operated telecommunications systems, providing redundancy and additional capability to Military SATCOM to meet critical mission requirements. The CSSC II will meet the Navy’s increased demand for satellite throughput. Figure 1 – CSSC II Notional Architecture provides a notional architecture
