ND SatCom Russia venture

ND SatCom, the Friedrichshafen-based, and a leading global supplier of satellite-based broadband VSAT, broadcast and defence communication network solutions said on March 28 that it has formed a Moscow subsidiary - ND SatCom Russia to strengthen its activities in Russia and the CIS states.

While Russia is usually perceived as being a European country, geographically it is two thirds in Asia with the main city in the East being Vladivostock. Russia's main digital terrestrial radio and TV networks stretch across the whole nation.

ND SatCom says its main marketing efforts are directed to broadcast & media, as well as the corporate and government sectors.

The Moscow team consists of local sales and engineering personnel who already have a long-term experience with the ND SatCom product portfolio. Through this organisation, challenging demands of the Russian and CIS states’ markets can be fulfilled in a timely manner.

In the near future, ND SatCom intends to expand its activities even further by opening a technical center which will be assigned with network design and testing and maintenance of ND SatCom equipment. The technical center will also be tasked with adapting ND SatCom’s technologies to the specific emerging market requirements and the developments in new satellite communication technologies.

ND SatCom is owned 74,9 per cent by AUGUSTA Technologie AG and a 25,1 per cent by SES Global.
