Ovzon and GetSAT Agree to Develop SOTM Terminals

Ovzon and GetSAT have signed an agreement to develop SATCOM-On-The-Move (SOTM) terminals for the former’s global satellite service.

By combining SOTM terminals developed by GetSAT and Ovzon's secure, end-to-end, mobile broadband satellite service, both companies strengthen their business opportunities for land, sea and air applications. This joint solution ensures SOTM broadband communications for defense, government, emergency response and broadcast customers world wide.

The companies reached the strategic partnership after the successful testing and demonstration of GetSAT’s MicroSAT L/M (Land/Mobile) for Land and Maritime applications in Sweden and the United States. GetSAT's terminals are based on the firm's 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, as the terminals are included in the Ovzon service, thereby minimizing the user’s investment and operating costs.

GetSAT's MICRO SAT LM comprises a fully integrated (including BUC and Modem), fully ruggedized terminal that is optimized for all applications, and is ideal for demanding environments, such as in helicopters, boats, and vehicles.

GetSAT'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.

Magnus René, the CEO of Ovzon, said that the company wants to address the need for SOTM services for land, maritime and airborne based applications with very small mobile broadband terminals for the firm's global service. GetSAT provides a powerful solution with a very small footprint.

Kfir Benjamin, GetSAT CEO, reported that the firm is excited to announce this partnership with Ovzon. GetSAT’s low size, weight and power terminals are a perfect match with Ovzon’s robust and agile end-to-end service.
