We pioneered the satellite market, and today our innovations serve as the driver for a new and even more powerful network, one that ensures truly seamless coverage, regardless of where you are and with whom you want to communicate. Our integrated satellite and terrestrial connectivity already reaches 99% of the world’s populated regions…now we can connect the unconnected…to make the unimaginable a reality…to open up new markets and services for you.
