Get SAT and HISPASAT reach agreement to offer on-demand mobile satellite services for security and emergency markets
Get SAT's small, lightweight and energy-efficient terminals provide essential benefits for the success of critical missions.
The HISPASAT fleet and the company's operating capacity allow it to offer services in scenarios that require rapid response times combined with extensive broadband use to transmit data.
With this collaboration, both companies add business opportunities in aerial, maritime, terrestrial services, and drones.
Rehovot (Israel) and Madrid, 21 March 2019. HISPASAT, the Spanish satellite-based telecommunications operator, and Get SAT, the manufacturer of micronized satellite terminals for aerial, maritime, and land-based applications, have signed an agreement to offer on-demand Satellite on The Move (SoTM) Services. By pairing Get SAT's ruggedized terminals and HISPASAT's powerful satellite fleet, both companies strengthen their business opportunities in the aviation, maritime, land-mobile, and unmanned sectors in support of security and emergency applications in Latin America, Europe, and North Africa. This joint solution ensures safe communications when natural disasters occur for urgently activated rescue teams and for security agencies using UAVs, helicopters, planes, or terrestrial vehicles.
The companies reached this strategic partnership after the successful demonstration of Get SAT’s Micro SAT Land and Maritime (L/M) mobile terminal, which reached data speeds of more than 5Mbps, during both upload and download, while remaining connected to HISPASAT's fleet. Get SAT'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 reduces the barriers to entry of this type of service for potential clients, thereby minimizing the impact of the user’s investment and operating costs.
Ignacio Sanchis, Business Director of HISPASAT, said, "We want to address the Emergency and Security services market, which is rapidly growing and requires robust, consistent connections in which satellites play a key role. Together with Get SAT, HISPASAT will be able to take advantage of the capacity of its entire network to offer broadband solutions in the Ka and Ku bands for projects that require rapid response times combined with extensive broadband use to transmit data".
Kfir Benjamin, Get SAT Chief Executive Officer, reported, “Our demonstration showed Get SAT's high technological proficiency in reaching constant high data speeds in on-the-move applications. The unique advantage of Get SAT's compact, lightweight, ultra-low power-consuming systems is that no user ever compromises on quality, size, weight, or power. Working with Hispasat augments our business development and expands our geographic reach and potential client base."
Get SAT's Micro SAT terminals are constructed as a fully integrated, lightweight compact design. The L/M family of products provides an on-the-move, ruggedized solution meeting the most stringent environmental standards. 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 maritime applications. Get SAT’s unique all-in-one design including BUC and modem is optimized for use in harsh environments and its ultra-low power-consuming platform is compatible with KA and KU-Band applications.
HISPASAT is comprised of companies that have a presence in Spain as well as in Latin America, where its Brazilian affiliate HISPAMAR is based HISPASAT is a world leader in content distribution in Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries and its satellite fleet is used by important direct-to-home television (DTH) and high-definition television (HDTV) digital platforms. HISPASAT also provides satellite broadband and connectivity services, which include broadband access, mobility and the backhaul networks, in addition to other added value solutions for governments, companies and telecommunication operators in America, Europe and North Africa. HISPASAT is one of the world's largest companies in its sector in terms of revenue, and the main communications bridge between Europe and the Americas.
