The RadNet system monitors radiation levels of air, drinking water, pasteurized milk and precipitation across the United States. The EPA will upgrade its existing network with the addition of Hughes satellite broadband technology during 2013.

The Hughes solution includes its HN9000 broadband satellite terminal and a dedicated Access Gateway, supporting expansion and potential conversion into a private network. Hughes will install and deliver satellite broadband services at up to five RadNet locations each month.

"By providing a dedicated Access Gateway at the Hughes Network Operations Center in Germantown, MD, EPA will have improved manageability and visibility into the network about its health, and be able to operate their sites like a private network," said Tony Bardo, assistant vice president of government solutions at Hughes. "We're excited to begin work on this contract with our first order."
