Ovzon and GetSAT to Develop SatCom-On-The-Move Terminals

Ovzon, a Swedish provider of broadband mobile communication services via satellite and ultra portable man packs, and GetSAT, an Israel-based manufacturer of flat-paneled satellite terminals, have signed an agreement to develop a secure end-to-end Satcom on The Move (SoTM) solution for land, sea and aerial applications. The joint solution will consist of Ovzon communication service and protocols integrated into GetSAT terminals. It address mainly customers in the defense, government, emergency response and broadcast sectors worldwide.

The two companies reached the partnership after a successful demonstration held in Sweden and the US of GetSAT’s MicroSAT treminals for land and maritime applications. 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.

Magnus René, CEO of Ovzon, explained that Ovzon wants to address the needs of “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.
