US Satcom considered by Defence, Dominion Post (14 Nov 2011)

The New Zealand Defence Force is considering buying into the United States military's US$3.5 billion (NZ$4.45b) Wideband Global Satcom (WGS) system, a satellite communications network for "US warfighters, allies and coalition partners during all levels of conflict, short of nuclear war".

Mark: I've been trying to learn more about the NZ Defence use and future needs for space technology, and recently sat down with NZ's Defence Technology Agency for initial introductions to KiwiSpace. Amongst other things, they referred me to this article (which somehow I'd missed).
