Get SAT and Transpondr to Offer Leased SATCOM Solutions to the US Federal Government and DoD
Mclean, VA and Atlanta, 21 October 2020: Get SAT, an innovator in small, lightweight satellite communication terminals for airborne, ground, and maritime applications, and Transpondr an Atlanta-based Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) specializing in enabling the delivery of flexible, creative, and cost-effective connectivity solutions through an innovative leasing platform, establish formal partnership to offer leased satellite communications solutions to the US Federal Government and Department of Defense (DoD).
Get SAT’s industry-leading communications-on-the-move (COTM) satellite terminals can now be leased by government organizations as an Operating Expenditure (OPEX) through Transpondr’s Leasing Platform, and by that allowing them to utilize their operations and maintenance funds (O&M) for equipment and bandwidth services in one single lease contract, creating a true “SATCOM as a Service” solution.
In the satellite and telecommunications industry, high up-front equipment costs are often an obstacle for organizations to get the solutions they need and to update equipment in a timely manner. Transpondr’s solution offers the customer the ability to spread their cost over multiple fiscal year budget cycles and to move forward with newer technology to meet ever-expanding requirements and new operational challenges. Additionally, Transpondr offers Global On-Demand/Occasional Use Satellite Bandwidth–Pay per day, week, month, or metered – which is the most reasonable way in these complicated days - less risks and more confidence to customers' needs.
Jason Stephens, VP Sales of Get SAT North America said:
“Uniting Get SAT’s CoTM systems with Transpondr’s Lease Platform provides the ultimate, flexible, and seamless on-the-move answers for a wide range of applications required by a wide range of DOD customers.”
