The market has been asking them for a maritime solution with the same innovative, modular and robust design as their current VSAT offering and he is very excited to now be able to satisfy their customers' request. Not only will they offer a Maritime solution that meets all the standards required for military use, but with the innovative and creative design from ASTG, they now offer a high-end solution at a very attractive price point.

The CEO of ASTG, David Svenn, commented that they are glad to announce deeper cooperation with DataPath for the distribution of their high-end maritime VSAT antennas.
