Ovzon to Supply US DoD Customer With Satellite Broadband Terminals
Ovzon, a satellite hardware company based in Sweden, has received an order for satellite terminals from an unnamed U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) customer. The order, announced Monday, marks the second new U.S. DoD customer for Ovzon in the last 90 days as the company looks to continue to expand its core customer base. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The order includes both the Ovzon T6 terminal for communications on the pause, as well as the Ovzon Medium OTM terminal, an autonomously steered antenna for communications on the move from ground, maritime, and aerial platforms.
The Ovzon T6 terminal is the latest addition to Ovzon’s mobility product offerings. It is laptop-sized and weighs 13 pounds. The company said it can be placed into operation by an untrained user in less than a minute. The Ovzon T6 can send up to a minimum of 70 Mbps and receive 120 Mbps.
“We continue our strong commitment to deliver unmatched, industry-leading performance and mobility to both government and commercial organizations with critical global communication requirements,” Per Norén, CEO of Ovzon, said in a statement.
