Intelsat General, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intelsat, operator of the world's first Globalized Network, powered by its leading satellite backbone, has announced that it has been awarded a long-term contract to provide commercial satellite communication services for a European defence network being provided by Airbus Defence and Space.

The long-term renewal includes selected C- and Ku-band transponders across multiple Intelsat satellites. The satellite solutions support national and international voice and data applications for the end-user well into the next decade.

"Intelsat General's satellite solutions will provide a complementary layer to the customer's existing military satcom capabilities, ensuring a high performing, resilient and secure solution for a European military network," said Skot Butler, President of Intelsat General Corporation.

"By leveraging Intelsat's Globalized Satellite Network, the customer will have the necessary communications infrastructure needed for its network whether it is on land or at sea."
