Our customers’ missions and business are always critical. Whether it involves soldiers manoeuvring down range, a supertanker ploughing through rough seas, mines and rigs operating in remote areas or first responders coping with the aftermath of a natural disaster, reliable satellite connectivity and accurate geo-information can mean the difference between success and failure.


As one of the world’s leading providers of managed satellite services, we are responsible for our customers’ time- and mission-critical communications and geo-information every day. In short, everything we do up there in space is to enable them to accomplish their goals down here on Earth.
