EMS Technologies Unveils Anti-Jam Antenna Solutions For Commercial Satellite Customers
EMS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:ELMG) announced today at the 23rd National Space Symposium that its Defense and Space Systems (D&SS) Division will offer anti-jam antenna solutions to the commercial space sector. EMS D&SS, which specializes in providing beam-forming networks that enable and protect communication channels to and from communications satellites, now sees a demand for its military style anti-jam beam management system from its commercial space customers following several high-profile incidents of jamming in the international arena.
“Anti-jamming technologies have been employed by the military to protect communications channels for some while now. We now are offering commercial customers options to safeguard their investments in satellites that offer consumer and business communication services in parts of the world that may be vulnerable to jamming,” says Michael Fatig, vice president of Business Development for EMS D&SS. “We estimate that 25 percent of the commercial satellite market will be interested in anti-jam technology. These tend to be broadband infrastructure satellites offering country-wide data services in developing regions of the world.”
Industry analyst firms, including NSR, see more commercial customers talking about anti-jam technology. “As the world becomes increasingly dependent on satellite technology, companies like EMS will win market share with solutions that defend the next-generation satellite infrastructure,” said Claude Rousseau, satellite communications analyst with Northern Sky Research. “Demand for anti-jamming technology will continue to grow as manufacturers and service providers seek to differentiate themselves from established providers. Over time, those companies with assets already in orbit may need to address this challenge directly, while new providers gain a stronger position of reliability and security.”
