Ovzon and GetSAT reach agreement to develop mobile satellite terminals for defense, government and emergency response services
May 23, 2019
Ovzon and GetSAT today announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership agreement that is expected to accelerate growth for both companies.

Rehovot (Israel) May 23, 2019: Ovzon, offering a revolutionary global mobile broadband service via satellite, 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 satellite 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 defense, government, emergency response and broadcast customers world wide.

The companies reached the strategic partnership after the successful testing and 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, because the terminals are included in the Ovzon service, thereby minimising the user’s investment and operating costs.

Magnus René, 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 a very demanding customer base together with Ovzon."

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.

GetSAT and Inmarsat Introduce Market’s Smallest Ruggedized Terminal for Global Xpress

MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX Ka-band Miniaturized Terminals Support Land and Maritime Communications-on-The-Move Requirements

02 May, 2019 -- GetSAT, a leading manufacturer of portable extremely efficient terminals that offer high data-rate communications for ground, air and maritime applications, and Inmarsat, the world leader in global,  mobile satellite communications, have today announced that Inmarsat has type approved GetSAT’s MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX for use on its Global Xpress service.

These new terminals are the lightest and most compact all-in-one, on-the-move solutions serving the Global Xpress network, the world’s first and only globally available, high-throughput wideband network.

Leveraging GetSAT’s highly efficient, patented InterFLAT miniaturized flat panel antenna technologies, MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX are the first communications-on-the-move terminals for ground vehicles using the worldwide Global Xpress network. These ruggedized terminals have been proven to operate in some of the toughest environmental conditions. Their combination of size, weight, and fast-tracking technology allows for operation on land-mobile and maritime platforms with aggressive vehicle dynamics.

Size and weight limitations have traditionally been a challenging requirement for land-mobile SATCOM applications. The size and weight of the MiliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX make them well suited for widespread adoption in the land mobile market.

MilliSAT-H-GX’s 25x27cm flat panel antenna fits inside a 40cm radome allowing easy installation. Additionally, the terminals’ low power consumption allows for battery operation, adding greatly to their flexibility. With industry leading SWaP (Size, Weight and Power), the units set a new standard for small, Inmarsat type-approved for SATCOM terminals used with Global Xpress.

“GetSAT is pushing the innovation envelope in creating – and constantly delivering – the industry’s most miniaturized terminals for airborne, ground and maritime on-the-move applications,” said GetSAT CEO, Kfir Benjamin. “Our mission to craft micronized technologies to support a small flat panel enables our team to consistently find new ways to successfully reduce terminal size while maintaining strength and power. Our MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX terminals were developed to meet Inmarsat’s exacting standards and provide users with ease of use.”

“Designed for worldwide mobility, Global Xpress has drawn a significant number of commercial and government customers due to its unique reliability, ease of use, and seamless interoperability with military satellite resources.  With the Inmarsat type approval of GetSAT’s terminals, ground and maritime on the move users have access to a very compact terminal to support their critical connectivity requirements,” said Steve Gizinski, Chief Technology Officer, Inmarsat Government.
