Orbit Technologies Is A Stable Influence For Telespazio Oil & Gas Platforms

[SatNews] Orbit Technologies Ltd., will supply Telespazio with high performance stabilized marine satellite communications systems to be installed onboard oil and gas industry platforms worldwide. This year, Telespazio’s orders for Orbit systems have reached 1.1 million dollars. Telespazio, a joint venture of Finmeccanica and Thales, is continuing their decade long relationship with Orbit which is supplying Telespazio with various models of its satellite communications systems optimized for specific marine applications.

The newly ordered marine satellite communications systems consist of the 1.15m Ku band Orsat-G systems and the 2.4m AL-7108 C Band systems. They feature advanced RF capability, enabling high speed broadband data transmission/reception even under the roughest conditions at sea.

Avi Cohen, Orbit’s CEO, says, “Orbit considers the oil and gas market one of the main engines driving the company’s global growth.” Oil and gas companies are increasingly dependent on uninterrupted broadband communication with their land based centers, and the financial costs of interrupted communications can be substantial.

“Our systems boast technological and technical capabilities that ensure the highest levels of connectivity and great savings,” says Cohen. He adds, “We find Telespazio’s repeat orders particularly rewarding, because we see it as testimony of their satisfaction with our products. As we continue to tailor our systems to market demands, we are convinced that creating our new Delivery Department to optimize the efficiency of order processing along the entire chain, from production to delivery and support, has resulted in our achievement of a complete overall customer experience.
