Mobile satellite communication antenna system company Intellian has signed a contract with communications provider OneWeb to manufacture User Terminals for use on the OneWeb Network.

The user terminals will be deployed to offer global service using OneWeb’s satellite constellation, delivering high throughput and low latency digital connectivity for various land and sea based applications including merchant marine. In a preliminary test setup, Intellian demonstrated superior data speeds and extremely low latency using its newly designed User Terminals connected to OneWeb’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites.

Eric Sung, President and CEO, Intellian Technologies, said: “Intellian is excited to be moving into the production phase with the signing of this contract, which represents a significant milestone for both Intellian and OneWeb in our joint partnership to deliver connectivity around the planet. We have seen, in real life testing, how our Intellian technology and OneWeb’s network will change lives.”

Larry Alder, COO OneWeb, said: “This partnership with Intellian is another demonstration of how OneWeb is delivering on its promises and bringing together all the elements needed to deliver global connectivity for everyone, everywhere. We are excited that with this production agreement, we will soon bring a range of new User Terminals to the market that will improve connectivity for the likes of the enterprise, cell backhaul, maritime, and government markets. We look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with Intellian now and in the future.”

This contract includes the production of a wide range of dedicated OneWeb User Terminal types in a variety of antenna sizes, designed to suit various customer application requirements. The contract incorporates an option of utilising existing Intellian NX series terminals with an ability to upgrade them to operate on the OneWeb LEO constellation in the future.
