HERNDON, Va., Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), a company of Vision Technologies Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), today announced that it has signed a framework agreement with specialized procurement center and logistics authority Danish Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) to deliver hardware, software, and services to the Danish Armed Forces. Using the iDirect defence portfolio, the Danish Armed Forces can ensure high quality support for multinational missions quickly and efficiently at all times and in any location. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.

In order to carry out a wide range of missions, the Danish Armed Forces require a communication system that can deliver secure, effective Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR). The iDirect Evolution portfolio enables the Danish Armed Forces to leverage the Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) program, along with partner nations defence satellites, and commercial satellites. The advanced Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities of the iDirect platform allows the Danish Armed Forces to dynamically balance traffic between operational and welfare requirements, and mobile and static deployments depending on the varying levels of priority.

iDirect's TRANSEC capabilities will help to build added security into their networks, and the technical expertise of the 24/7 iDirect Technical Assistance Center (TAC) provides a high level of reliability to the Danish Armed Forces. The rollout of new products in the iDirect defence portfolio will provide the Danish Armed Forces with a highly efficient and resilient portfolio of remotes, designed to lower operating costs.

"We are very pleased to be able to team up with the Danish Armed Forces and to make the best use of our defence portfolio; this is a partnership where both parties are looking forward to delivering world class services to the Danish Armed Forces. The Danish have a well-earned reputation for providing high quality support to multinational missions and are considered by their allies to be some of the most professional of partners. iDirect's Evolution portfolio will enable the Danish Armed Forces to meet their objective to maintain the principle of ARC (Affordability, Resilience and Capability). Looking forward, with the introduction of new iDirect series of remotes we will continue to ensure resiliency at lower operational cost to provide a truly global, flexible and highly capable system deployable anywhere, anytime," said Steve Tunnicliffe, Regional Vice President, Europe, VT iDirect.
