Ovzon‘s announcement of a contract that covers three months, from early September to early December 2020, is valued at a total of US$3.9Million, with the U.S. Department of Defense (U.S. DoD), through the U.S. service provider Intelsat General Corporation. IGC includes satellite capacity on a steerable beam on Intelsat’s IS-39.
The contract is for the use of Ovzon’s satellite communication services. The contract is aligned by the customer to match their budgetary schedules and the contract is expected to continue following those first three months.
Ovzon’s current service offering, through leased capacity, will be dramatically expanded when Ovzon’s new satellite, Ovzon 3, is launched in 2021. Ovzon 3 will provide enhanced performance and functionality and is an important step to further revolutionize mobile broadband by satellite, offering the highest bandwidth with the smallest terminals. Ovzon 3 is the first of a number of satellites planned for Ovzon’s high-end, global service.
”We are excited to enter our eighth year of continued service for U.S. DoD and we are happy to see our end users’ satisfaction with our “end to end” capability. With this contract we are adding the capability of a steerable beam and thereby paving the way for our coming Ovzon 3 satellite. Ovzon 3 is equipped with a number if steerable beams and will further enhance our service and offering,” says Magnus René, CEO of Ovzon.
