The 18 month renewal, valued at $1.1 million, will start on September 1, 2022, and represents an extension of Ovzon’s services in specific regions of the world. This renewal does not include all critical SATCOM-as-a-Service solutions provided by Ovzon to the UK Government, which are expected to be renewed later in 2022.
“As the security situation in Europe continues to evolve, secure, mobile, high speed satellite communications will become even more critical for command-and-control centers, delivering sensor data, and most importantly senior leader assured communications. The UK MoD’s long-term renewal of Ovzon services is a testament to how important guaranteed communications are to national security in the region. With the launch of Ovzon’s first own satellite, Ovzon 3, later this year we will be able to deliver industry leading throughput, security, and resiliency to not just the UK, but to all NATO Nations who need the most reliable and secure SATCOM-as-a-Service solutions in the world,” said Per Norén, CEO of Ovzon.
