Viasat and Azercosmos to expand satellite services across EMEA and Asia

Baku, Azerbaijan May, 23, 2024– Viasat, Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT), a global leader in satellite communications, today announced it is working with Azercosmos to bring its highly reliable L-band satellite services to Azerbaijan and beyond.


Under the proposed partnership, Azercosmos and Viasat will provide connectivity for a range of industrial applications to help organizations operate more efficiently, sustainably, or safely - even in the most remote locations. This includes powering applications like tracking and telemetry for advanced transport systems, pipeline monitoring and control for energy companies, real-time control for utilities, and environmental or safety monitoring for mining and agriculture.


Azercosmos  provides a range of telecommunications, remote sensing, surveying, and ground station communications services in both public and private sectors. The partnership with Viasat will significantly expand its available connectivity offering, meaning it can provide more services for existing and new customers alongside connectivity from its existing satellite fleet.


It will hallmark the first time that Viasat-enabled satellite services are being offered within the Republic of Azerbaijan.


Andy Kessler, President, Viasat Enterprise and Land Mobile, said: “Our global satellite fleet powers a vast range of applications and sectors across the world, ranging from a single explorer using a satellite phone to major industrial sites managing complex supply chains across borders. To make that happen, we are proud to work with a diverse ecosystem of partners to put our customers’ vision first. Partnering with Azercosmos is an exciting step forward to bring those services to new people and organizations.”


Fuad Aslanov, the Vice-chairman of Azercosmos noted: The agile response in the satellite service market is critically important for us, and as Azercosmos, we aim to expand our reliable service to consumers and businesses globally. This landmark agreement with our strategic partner, Viasat, will solidify our collaboration in unlocking boundless possibilities in connectivity in EMEA and Asia.
