During the five-day exhibition, Yahsat Government Solutions and Thuraya are unveiling nine new solutions that provide robust, secure, and integrated satellite connectivity. The technologies form part of Yahsat’s wider offering, featuring a diverse ecosystem of integrated satellite solutions designed to meet the most complex security requirements of governments and defence clients.
