The company signed a strategic agreement with Intelsat in 2014, enabling Airbus Defence and Space to bridge its existing maritime VSAT services to Intelsat’s EpicNG platform, which is scheduled to begin launching in early 2016

Both parties claim that the partnership, which has now reached its conclusion, helped drive market demand over the year, with Airbus Defence and Space delivering VSAT to shipping companies including Stolt, CMA CGM, Scorpio, and DOF.

“Our partnership  with Intelsat  has given  us further flexibility to develop the connectivity services the maritime market requires today, but also for the future with the Intelsat EpicNG HTS satellites coming soon,” said Evert Dudok, head of communications, intelligence and security (CIS) business line at Airbus Defence and Space.

“Our mission is to stay close to the customers and integrate the services they need into a single solution. This approach has resulted in significant sales growth since our agreement with Intelsat last year, and given the progress and offering delivered to date, we are expecting even more growth in the maritime VSAT segment.”
