Inmarsat, a provider of global mobile satellite communications, has revealed that it will use the upcoming edition of CABSAT in Dubai to outline its plans for development in the United Arab Emirates.
This follows the recent grant of a Public Satellite Service License for Inmarsat services to operate in the region. The licence gives Inmarsat permission to offer its services to public and private sector users in government, media, maritime and aviation markets, and to help support humanitarian and emergency relief efforts in the UAE.
“Inmarsat has long considered the UAE a key region for future development,”said Paul Gudonis VP of Enterprise at Inmarsat.
He continued: “Traditionally the UAE has been viewed by the satellite industry as a single-market economy – oil and gas. However, Inmarsat has observed development and growth in several key UAE markets; from transportation and logistics, to exciting new developments in agri-tech, to the construction of infrastructure, and the diversification in the energy and resources market to focus on renewable energy sources.”
As well as exhibiting at CABSAT 2016, Inmarsat will announce a major development at the show, which it claims will further outlines the company’s commitment to development in the region.
