Intellian agrees deal to develop Viasat maritime VSAT antennas

Satellite operator Viasat has agreed a deal with Intellian to design and supply a range of new Ka-band user terminals for use with Viasat’s maritime connectivity system, as well as a 100cm upgrade kit for Intellian’s existing NX Series units.

The contract, which follows on from a recent antenna deal between Viasat and Cobham SATCOM, will see Intellian create a range of new 60cm and 100cm user terminals built to access Viasat’s satellite network, including the upcoming ViaSat-3 constellation.

The launch of the first of a trio of ViaSat-3 satellites is scheduled for the first quarter of 2023 and is expected to be in service for the maritime market next year.

“This is a great opportunity for Intellian to collaborate with one of the leading global communications companies, combining our individual excellence to form a long-lasting and fruitful relationship,” said Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian.

“The contract win is yet another tangible example of our placement as a market leader, utilising our unparalleled engineering and supply chain capabilities to deliver exceptional value to the market.”
