· Pilot strategy to · Single vendor award · Three small lease transponders to lease/manage business integrator and earth terminals commercial awards to lease with network bandwidth in full fractional management to transponder, full transponders for any satisfy non-essential year increments period of time nonSATCOM


· Three vendors · Inability to lease conducted partial transponders demonstrations and led to unacceptable recommended operational delays acquisition, · Prices high due to transition, logistics, absence of and host nation competition and approval plan as per incentives resulting MTC


· Competition between vendors and satellite operators resulted in good pricing · Effective construct given market conditions 5
