LeoSat and GlobalSat sign strategic agreement

LeoSat Enterprises, which is in the process of developing a new constellation of up to 108 low-earth-orbit communications satellites, has entered into a strategic agreement with the Globalsat Group, an American satellite services provider, to market the forthcoming HTS data network across various markets.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Globalsat Group is already involved in delivering voice, data and M2M/IoT satellite systems. Through this agreement, LeoSat will provide the Globalsat Group with access to infrastructure to create the Globalsat LEO Network, in turn providing LeoSat with access to the Americas market.

LeoSat’s new system of low earth orbit communications satellites will utilise inter-satellite laser links, creating an optical backbone in space which it says will help it to deliver gigabit per second speeds.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Globalsat Group, an established and highly respected provider of mobile communications services throughout the entire American continent,” said LeoSat’s SVP sales, Americas, Michael Abad-Santos.

“The consortium’s breadth of services across government, enterprise and maritime markets in the Americas make Globalsat an ideal launch partner for LeoSat.”

“In an increasingly connected world, both of our companies see the importance of providing access to reliable high-speed, low-latency data and voice communications anywhere on the globe. The LeoSat constellation offers a completely new dimension in terms of connectivity and we are already seeing a high level of interest from a number of key markets such as, finance, government and energy.”

LeoSat is currently working with Thales Alenia Space on finalising the manufacturing plan for the LEO satellites, to prepare for the production and deployment of the constellation.{/mprestriction}
