Viasat UK

Viasat is a global communications company that believes everyone and everything in the world can be connected. For over 35 years, Viasat has helped shape how consumers, businesses, governments, and militaries around the world communicate. Today, the company is developing the ultimate global communications network to power high-quality, secure, affordable, fast connections to impact people’s lives anywhere they are—on the ground, in the air, or at sea.

Viasat launched its first satellite, ViaSat-1, in October 2011. ViaSat-1 carried 140 Gbps capacity and was the highest capacity satellite in the world at the time of its launch. In 2017, Viasat launched ViaSat-2, a Ka-band satellite which greatly expanded speeds and geographic coverage, and it was the world’s highest-capacity communications satellite at the time of launch.

The Company is now focused on delivering its latest satellite innovation – the ViaSat-3 constellation. ViaSat-3 is a global constellation of three terabit-class geostationary Ka-band communications satellites that will provide coverage over the Americas, EMEA, and APAC regions. The first ViaSat-3 Americas satellite is scheduled to launch in late 2022, and the EMEA and APAC launches are expected to follow in 2023.

Viasat’s UK team provides a focus for efforts across the UK and Europe in two major areas – Space and Communications and Information Assurance. The Space and Communications team is engaged in applications, systems and services for defence, government, enterprise, and consumer satellite communications. Viasat UK also has a specialised Information Assurance team who provide high assurance security solutions for use in platforms ranging from laptops to UAVs and helicopters. This includes industry-leading Data At Rest (DAR) encryption products, which are classified up to Top Secret by UK NCSC and CSE Canada.
