HERNDON, Va., Oct. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Segovia, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Inmarsat plc and a leading provider of secure, global telecommunications to the public and private sectors, announced today that it has been awarded its tenth terrestrial contract by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization (DITCO). The recent wins have allowed Segovia to quickly and successfully expand its terrestrial presence to meet network requirements for customers such as the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA), Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), Defense Information systems Agency (DISA), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and other Government agencies in multiple U.S. locations.
