SatComBw satellite provides services to troops in operation. With the SatComBw programme, signed on July 2006 with a new joint venture MilSat Services GmbH between EADS SPACE Services (74.9 %) ND SatCom (25.1 %), the German Armed Forces will have a secure information network for use by units on deployed missions. This will allow voice and fax as well as advanced data, video and multimedia applications. For the first time the Bundeswehr will have a secure communications system with dedicated military communications satellites.
