LeoSat and Globalsat Group Sign Strategic Worldwide Agreement
[Via Satellite 12-02-2016] LeoSat Enterprises, which is launching a constellation of up to 108 Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) communications satellites, has entered into a strategic agreement with the Globalsat Group, a Pan-American satellite services provider, to market its HTS data network. Through this agreement, LeoSat will provide the Globalsat Group with access to infrastructure for the Globalsat LEO Network and the Globalsat Group will provide LeoSat with access to the Americas market, leveraging its presence and experience.
LeoSat’s new system of LEO communications satellites can deliver lower latency and stronger end-to-end security compared to traditional satellite and terrestrial solutions used today. This is achieved through a unique architecture utilizing inter-satellite laser links, creating an optical backbone in space with fiber-like symmetry at gigabit per second speeds. It also provides unprecedented security as the data is encrypted from end-to-end across the network, with no terrestrial touch points.
Alberto Palacios, CEO of Globalsat, will hold a seat in representation of the Globalsat Group on the LeoSat Customer Technical Advisory Committee (CTAC). The committee will advise on system configuration, product design and launch of LeoSat’s upcoming satellite constellation.
