Ovzon receives an order from Swedish Space Corporation for SATCOM-as-a-Service

Satellite hardware company Ovzon today received an order from their new partner Swedish Space Corporation (SSC), for Ovzon’s SATCOM-as-a-Service [1.]. The initial contract covers a period during the first half of 2023.

Ovzon’s SATCOM-as-a-Service is the markets leading integrated solution. It combines Ovzon’s ultra-small mobile satellite terminals, highly resilient and high-performance satellite networks, and the best-in-industry service and support from Ovzon’s Network Operations Center (NOC).

Note 1. SATCOM-as-a-Managed Service is an end-to-end turnkey service for high-throughput connectivity that can support the demands of users on base, at varied tactical locations and during critical missions — anytime and anywhere.

With this contract, Ovzon deepens its collaboration with SSC, which acts both as the main party in the dialogue with customers, mainly within the Swedish government, and as a partner in the delivery of the service. Both are important parts of the end-to-end solution that has now been created to meet the specific and critical needs of these end customers.

“We are very happy and proud to receive this first order in collaboration with SSC. We provide the customer with a world-leading all-Swedish and highly efficient satellite communication service based on Swedish technology and innovation. The service enables a new level of capability needed in a world of heightened geopolitical unrest. Of course, we also hope for continued cooperation around our satellite Ovzon 3 and its unique features with increased mobility, performance, and resiliency. Ovzon 3 will further strengthen the ability of customers who must be able to conduct vital societal functions and protect critical infrastructure during operations in complex and vulnerable situations”, says Per Norén, CEO of Ovzon.

The Ovzon T5 is an all-in-one, laptop-sized broadband terminal providing access to the high throughput Ovzon satellite service as per this image:

In January 2022, Ovzon secured a $9.8 million contract for 14 months of Satcom as a Service (SaaS) for the Italian Fire and Rescue Service. The service will equip the Italian Fire and Rescue Service with a communications network that can  support data and voice communications, and high-definition video streaming.

“Fires are an increasing threat in Italy, as climate change factors become visible in areas such as the Mediterranean. The complexity and risk to safety and rescue and disaster recovery operations requires reliable and fast communication and Ovzon’s satellite communication solution is a perfect solution for this need,” said Gaetano Morena, CEO of Gomedia Satcom.
