On April 13, the Council of Ministers approved the Ministry of Defense Framework Agreement in support of the Spanish Military Communications Satellite System (SECOMSAT) for an estimated value of EUR 32,435,000.00. According to the advice of the Council of Ministers, the contract will make it possible to maintain the family of satellite terminals on an ongoing basis and ensure their operational availability, although the duration of the framework agreement has not been specified.
SECOMSAT is a large capacity and high reliability long-distance military communications network via satellite that allows armed forces stationed on the peninsula and outside the peninsula to access their command and logistics support through the Joint Military Telecommunications System (SCTM), which is why it is is vital to the armed forces in both their land and naval operations.
