Vislink Technologies receives orders for satellite communications equipment from Airbus

(10 February 2020 - Vislink) Vislink Technologies has announced that is has received orders valued at over $400,000 for satellite communications equipment from Airbus Defence and Space Limited (Airbus).

The orders are for ground terminals to be used in support of the Airbus contract with the UK Government, providing satellite communications services to UK Government agencies and the Ministry of Defence through the Skynet 5 program.

One of the orders received is included under a new Master Purchase Agreement (“MPA”) that Vislink has signed with Airbus. The MPA covers the supply of Vislink MSAT, MANTIS and NewSwift satellite communication solutions and related equipment and engineering services to Airbus. There is the potential for additional orders to be placed under this MPA as a subsequent phase of the program is implemented.

“We are proud to have been selected by Airbus for this agreement,” said John Payne, President and COO of Vislink. “It speaks to our established track record in the manufacture and supply of satellite ground terminals for the law enforcement, public safety and defense markets around the world.”

“This first order proves the flexibility, efficiency and effectiveness of the MPA,” said Tony Price, VP, Business Development, Military and Government for Vislink. “We look forward to future opportunities to support Airbus SatCom projects around the world under this agreement.”
