The Global Broadcast Service leverages commercial direct broadcast satellite technology to deliver critical information to the nation's warfighters. For over a decade, GBS has provided wideband transmission service capable of supporting timely delivery of classified and unclassified data and video products for mission support and theater information transfer. 

The GBS augments overburdened government communications systems to provide information. GBS is a highly agile, extensible and scalable COTS-based system that provides full flexibility to broadcast mission critical data over both military and commercial satellites.  GBS provides world-wide Internet protocol broadcast of real time video, imagery and other data sources across the global information grid to support U.S. forces and government agencies.

Since 2004, Raytheon has delivered over 1700 AN/TSR 8/9/10 and 100 Navy shipboard and submarine GBS Receive Suite variants. Baselines are continually updated to ensure DIACAP compliance for Information Assurance and Vulnerability Assessment, hot fixes, and patches.   Under U.S. Army’s GBS RESET program, Raytheon ingests and refurbishes GBS Transportable Ground Receive Suite worn or damaged during field operations.
