ViaSat produces innovative satellite, cyber security and other digital communication products that enable fast, secure, and efficient communications for commercial and government sectors.

ViaSat is changing the perception of satellite communications by increasing bandwidth, speed and user experience to widen opportunities for satellite use. The ViaSat-1 satellite, launched in October 2011, is the highest capacity satellite in orbit and offers 10 times the throughput of any previous Ka band satellite and 100 times that of Ku. Services include Exede, commercial in-flight broadband which delivers up to 12Mbps to each airline passenger.

ViaSat-2, due for launch in 2016, will have double the capacity and five times the coverage of ViaSat-1, bringing another step change to satellite communications. Other ViaSat satellites, together with the growth of the related ground stations, will further improve this world-beating capacity – offering British and European companies and populations countless opportunities.

ViaSat UK combines satellite communications with world-class encryption, cyber security and critical infrastructure protection for governments, militaries and corporations. With a heritage in the information assurance field, the company has a justifiably high reputation for delivering CESG, NATO and internationally accredited communications and encryption technologies across air, land, and sea environments.
