Intelsat General Communications has renewed a contract with satellite hardware provider Ovzon for Satcom-as-a-Service for the U.S. Department of Defense, worth close to $15 million. The 12-month renewal will have a start date in mid-December 2021 and represents a full extension of Ovzon’s baseline services through December 2022. Ovzon announced the award on Dec. 14.

Ovzon said its Satcom-as-a-Service offering to the U.S. DoD has grown substantially throughout 2021 to include expanded global coverage and a significant increase in the number of Ovzon T6 terminals. This renewal does not include other product and service awards received by Ovzon from the U.S. DoD during 2021. Ovzon’s ultra-small mobile satellite terminals are integrated with satellite network performance, aiming to provide a high level of strategic, operational and tactical agility to the U.S. DoD and other users with critical missions.

“We are honored to continue delivering Ovzon’s Satcom-as-a-Service to our U.S. DoD partners. We deeply value the trust emplaced in us by this important customer,” Per Norén, CEO of Ovzon, said in a statement.
