Sky And Space Global Preps Commercial Opportunities In The Americas
Sky and Space Global Ltd, the Australian Stock Exchange-listed company specializing in narrowband satellite communications, is pleased to announce it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Arycom Capacidade Satelital Ltda. and a MoU with Cobbosseecontee Communications, LLC.
Arycom Capacidade Satelital is a Brazilian company and a provider of satellite voice and broadband data solutions serving the needs of customers on land, at sea and in the air. Headquartered in São Paulo, with offices in Rio de Janeiro, Miami and Atlanta, Arycom is a premier service provider of Inmarsat, Iridium and Globalstar, and global partner of Marlink.
Under the terms of the MoU, SAS and Arycom will work closely to explore how the SAS nanosatellite connectivity can be incorporated into Arycom’s network and utilised to improve Arycom’s offering.
The MoU with Arycom supports SAS’s global growth strategy by increasing its presence in South America and moves closer to becoming a global player in the nano-satellite market. The Brazilian market equates to 200 million people, all located within the equatorial region and with limited access to affordable connectivity services. This has the potential to generate significant revenue for SAS.
Cobbosseecontee Communications, LLC is a division of Carnegie Technologies, a global communications company headquartered in Texas, United States. Carnegie Technologies specialises in connectivity and convergence solutions for mobility, satellite, the Internet of Things, connected cars and other emerging technologies.
Under the terms of the Reseller MoU, SAS and Cobbosseecontee will collaborate to explore how Cobbosseecontee will become a key reseller of the SAS Solution with the intent for Cobbosseecontee to include the SAS Solutions in its offering and distribute communication services based upon the SAS Solutions.
The Reseller MoU with Cobbosseecontee further consolidates SAS’s position in the international resellers network and moves SAS closer of becoming a dominant player in the satellite communication market.
SpaceLink announced it has chosen OHB Systems as the preferred tenderer for the initial constellation of four high-capacity optical relay satellites after a comprehensive tender process.
