The UAE on the Satcom Centre Stage: Opportunities and A New Vision for Tomorrow’s Connectivity
The UAE has embarked on a massive diversification journey, engineering a shift of focus from hydrocarbon revenues toward a technology-driven economic growth that is also sustainable. These reverberations of change are felt in the international space sector as well, with the country making waves through its highly successful Mars Mission, and the ongoing Lunar Exploration programme. Underpinning the UAE’s aspirations for the satellite sector is Yahsat, the Mubadala-owned communications enterprise based out of Abu Dhabi. In a pandemic year, Yahsat was one of the few space brands to register double-digit growth and post robust returns from its businesses consisting of Yahsat Government Solutions, Thuraya, YahClick (Powered by Hughes), YahLink and Yahlive.
With a fleet of 5 satellites serving government, defense and commercial markets globally, Yahsat’s expansion strategy, and emergence as an industry innovator and disruptor complement the UAE’s remarkable narrative of growth. Undeterred by the global slowdown, the operator has launched a US$ 500 million transformational programme to upgrade the space and ground systems of its mobile satellite services subsidiary, Thuraya, and roll out mobility solutions by 2024.
Yahsat cordially invites you to join this webinar to learn about its long-term strategies, newest satellite system - Thuraya 4-NGS - and technologies that will usher in new opportunities for growth and development.
