Es’hailSat and BridgeSat Bring Secure, High-Performance, Low-Cost Laser Satellite Communications to the Middle East

Qatar Satellite Company
and BridgeSat
today announced a strategic relationship that will provide businesses
and governments across the Middle East with affordable access to
laser-based satellite broadband services. This is the latest milestone
toward BridgeSat’s goal of providing organizations worldwide with a
faster, less expensive and most secure alternative to traditional radio
frequency (RF) solutions for low earth orbit (LEO) and geostationary
earth orbit (GEO) applications.

BridgeSat owns and operates a growing global network of optical ground
stations (OGS) and complimentary satellite terminals that provide
high-bandwidth, high-security solutions for unique applications while
complementing RF in hybrid networks. Es’hailSat owns and operates a
growing number of Ka- and Ku-band satellites serving broadcasters,
businesses and governments in the MENA region and beyond.

Es’hailSat has recognized the growth of the communications market and is
making the forward looking move to enhance its capabilities to support
the space enterprise.

Under the strategic relationship, BridgeSat will build its first OGS for
the Middle East, which will be co-located at Es’hailSat’s new satellite
operations center in Doha, Qatar. The new OGS will support LEO and other
satellite systems owned by Es’hailSat and other companies that are
equipped with BridgeSat and other compatible space terminals.

“Our new relationship with Es’hailSat gives us a critical gateway to the
MENA region and is a major milestone toward our goal of providing
organizations worldwide with fast, secure, enterprise-grade broadband
services,” said Barry
Matsumori, BridgeSat CEO
. “Like Es’hailSat, we see partnerships with
innovative companies worldwide as key for revolutionizing satellite

”Es’hail-1 and Es’hail-2 satellites are fully operational, and we
recently commenced satellite control and other satellite services from
our state-of-the-art teleport in Doha,” said Ali Al Kuwari, President &
CEO of Es’hailSat. “Collaboration with BridgeSat is a step forward for
us in expanding the type of services we provide to customers in the
region, beyond the traditional satellite services.”
