Rivada Space Networks seems to be on a roll with numerous contracts announced. Their latest news concerns a partnership with aerospace and aviation services company The Aerospace Industries (TAI), based in Bangkok, Thailand. The aim is to bring reliable and secure connectivity services to the commercial, military and general aviation sectors in Thailand and beyond.

Chris Atswalongkorn, CEO of TAI, said: “We are very excited to leverage Rivada’s next-generation satellite connectivity to expand our services across the defense, aviation and enterprise sectors. The OuterNET is a fully-interconnected orbital network which effectively serves as a private network in space, capable of routing traffic at gigabit speeds from one satellite to another with no need for a gateway on earth. We see this as the key infrastructure for the development of the telecom sector in Thailand and beyond.”

Declan Ganley, Rivada Space Networks CEO, added: “We are delighted to be supporting Thai Aerospace Industries to expand their reach and services.” As a completely new type of LEO constellation, the OuterNET allows satellites to go beyond their traditional role of ‘gap-filler’ and our fully inter-connected space network, independent of terrestrial infrastructure, is rapidly becoming the network of choice for secure, resilient communications and network expansion”.
