Ovzon and Get SAT reach agreement to develop mobile satellite terminals for defense, government and emergency response services
Ovzon and Get SAT 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 Get SAT, 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 Get SAT 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 worldwide.
The companies reached the strategic partnership after the successful testing and demonstration of Get SAT’s Micro SAT L/M (Land/Mobile) for Land and Maritime applications in Sweden and the United States. 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 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. Get SAT provides a powerful solution with a very small footprint."
Kfir Benjamin, Get SAT CEO reported, “Get SAT is very excited to announce this partnership with Ovzon. Get SAT’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."
Get SAT'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.
