Ovzon, who offers a revolutionary global mobile broadband service via satellite and ultra portable man packs, and GetSAT, the manufacturer of innovative satellite terminals for aerial, maritime and land-based applications, have signed an agreement to develop SATCOM-on-the-Move (SoTM) terminals for Ovzon’s global service.

By combining SoTM terminals developed by GetSAT and Ovzon’s world leading secure end-to-end mobile broadband satellite service, both companies strengthen their business opportunities for land, sea and air applications. This joint solution ensures secure and robust SoTM broadband communications for defence, government, emergency response and broadcast customers world wide.

The companies reached the strategic partnership after the successful demonstration of GetSAT’s MicroSAT L/M (Land / Mobile) for Land and Maritime applications in Sweden and the United States.

GetSAT’s terminals are based on its patented InterFLAT technology, which allows signals to be transmitted and received in the same panel, thus reducing the size, weight and energy consumption to provide advantages essential for the success of critical missions.

The agreement enables simpler accessibilty for potential clients, since the terminals are included in the Ovzon service, thereby minimising the user’s investment and operating costs.

Magnus Rene, CEO of Ovzon, said, “Ovzon wants to address the need for Satcom on the Move services for land, maritime and airborne based applications with very small mobile broadband terminals for our global service. GetSAT provides a powerful solution with a very small footprint.”

Kfir Benjamin, GetSAT CEO reported, “GetSAT is very excited to announce this partnership with Ovzon. GetSAT’s low size, weight and power terminals are a perfect match with Ovzon’s robust and agile end-to-end service. We look forward to supporting Ovzon, one of our most demanding customers.”

GetSAT’s terminals are constructed in a light and compact installation. The L/M family of products are micronized, fully integrated, on-the-move, ruggedized solutions. All L/M terminals are easy to deploy and integrate, and can be outfitted with various antenna sizes in accordance with bandwidth requirements of ground, air and marine applications.

A unique all-in-one design including BUC and modem is optimized for harsh environments specs and its ultra-low power-consuming platform is compatible with Ka- and Ku-Band applications.
