SpeedCast has just signed a partnership agreement with Airbus Defence and Space to offer military-grade satellite communication services to the Australia and New Zealand governments. The company will be offering tactical secure communications services to government customers, delivering secure X-band network services that combine the affordability, operational utility and scalability required to meet the stringent requirements of government, military and humanitarian operations. Airbus Defence and Space has also appointed SpeedCast to manage a new anchor station facility for the Skynet 5A military satellite, which is based at SpeedCast’s existing teleport in Adelaide, Australia, inaugurated on May 18, 2016.

SpeedCast continues to strengthen their commitment to the Australian satellite market with expanded capabilities at its world class teleport in Adelaide with Skynet satellite communications. 
Pierre-Jean Beylier, the CEO of SpeedCast, informed all that his firm has more than 25 years of experience in serving the Australian government and providing military satellite communications services and that the firm is confident their deep rooted connection in the market and understanding of the needs can enable Skynet-based services to expand in the region.
