Speedcast International Limited has expanded its contract with Airbus, one of the world’s largest defence contractors, to include a partnership in the Philippines.
Speedcast Enterprise and Emerging Markets executive vice president Andrew Burdall said: "We are proud to expand our service agreement with Airbus into this new region. The extension is a testament to the hard work and dedication the Speedcast and Airbus teams have put into creating a trusted partnership."
With this extended contract, Speedcast will work with Airbus to build relationships and partnerships with local agencies. It will also provide secure X-band communications in the Philippines region, which is a communication frequency predominantly used by military and government agencies.
As one of the only service providers with the security clearance to sell X-band and with the only approved station for the Skynet constellation in the Asia-Pacific region located at Speedcast’s teleport facility in Adelaide, Australia, Speedcast has become a major channel partner for Airbus in a number of countries across the Asia-Pacific region.
Airbus Secure Communications head Richard Franklin stated: "It is a really positive step to further increase our relationship with Speedcast, to allow countries to benefit from the unique capabilities of the Skynet fleet."
