Sky and Space Global (SAS), the New Space narrowband satellite communications company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) to explore how SAS’ communications service can be integrated into their respective national telecommunications infrastructure.
Under the terms of the MoU, SAS and OECS will collaborate to explore how SAS’ connectivity platform can be incorporated into the communication infrastructure of OECS member states, to improve and enhance its reliability, accessibility, and feasibility.
“I am delighted to report that we have leveraged our existing relationships in the Caribbean and signed an agreement with OECS,” said Meir Moalem, managing director and CEO of SAS. “Over the last months we have focused on demonstrating our capabilities and building traction in this region, and our efforts have been fruitful.”
Signing this agreement supports SAS’ business model of providing connectivity to equatorial locations and becoming a leading global player in the nano-satellite market.
The agreement stipulates a mutually agreed commitment by OECS to satisfy a minimum number of devices and services, and also includes the option to increase the number of devices and services required to meet OECS’ needs.
“The OECS is constantly exploring emerging technologies and providers to address the unique connectivity need of our Member territories,” said Dr. Didacus Jules, director general of the OECS. “We are looking forward to exploring the possibilities with Sky and Space Global’s solutions as part of the OECS’ broader communications resilience and security framework.”
“I look forward to working with the excellent team at OECS and bringing dependable connectivity to the people of the Eastern Caribbean,” Moalem concluded.
The OECS is an international inter-governmental organisation dedicated to economic harmonization and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean.
