Thai Aerospace Partners With Rivada For Network Expansion

Next-Generation Satellite Network is Key for Secure and Resilient Communications

  • Unique global constellation using satellite-to-satellite laser links
  • Ultra-secure and extremely low latency network
  • Combining the speed of fiber with the reach of satellite

Munich and Bangkok /PRNewswire/ - Thai Aerospace Industries (TAI), an aerospace and aviation services company headquartered in Bangkok, is partnering with Rivada Space Networks to bring highly reliable and secure connectivity services to the commercial, military and general aviation sectors in Thailand and beyond.

Rivada's global low-latency point-to-point network of 600 low earth orbit (LEO) satellites, the "OuterNETTM," is a unique next-generation constellation combing inter-satellite laser links with advanced onboard processing that provide unique routing and switching capabilities, to create an optical mesh network in space. This "orbital network," in which data stays in space from origin to destination, creates an ultra-secure satellite network with pole-to-pole coverage, offering end-to-end latencies much lower than terrestrial fiber over similar long distances. And by routing traffic on a physically separated network, it provides a layer of defense for any organization that needs to securely share data between widely distributed sites.

For its Government and Defense divisions, Rivada's OuterNETTM will enable Thai Aerospace Industries to improve connectivity across their airfields, providing them with an easy to deploy network with higher bandwidth and improved security for resilient and more reliable communications services.

TAI is also an independent provider of aviation services in Southeast Asia. Commercial and military operators are increasingly under pressure to reduce their maintenance, repair and overhaul costs without compromising fleet effectiveness or safety. Using Rivada's OuterNETTM will enable TAI to have better control and management of its aviation servicing center.

TAI is also looking into expanding into the burgeoning enterprise sector and has strong relationships with the telecommunication companies in Thailand, which can use Rivada's OuterNETTM to bring enterprise-grade connectivity anywhere on the globe.

Chris Atswalongkorn, CEO of TAI, said: "We are very excited to leverage Rivada's next-generation satellite connectivity to expand our services across the defense, aviation and enterprise sectors. The OuterNETTM is a fully interconnected orbital network which effectively serves as a private network in space, capable of routing traffic at gigabit speeds from one satellite to another with no need for a gateway on earth. We see this as the key infrastructure for the development of the telecom sector in Thailand and beyond."

Declan Ganley, CEO, Rivada Space Networks, said: "We are delighted to be supporting Thai Aerospace Industries to expand their reach and services." Ganley added: "As a completely new type of LEO constellation, the OuterNETTM allows satellites to go beyond their traditional role of 'gap-filler' and our fully inter-connected space network, independent of terrestrial infrastructure, is rapidly becoming the network of choice for secure, resilient communications and network expansion."

Rivada's OuterNETTM will solve essential connectivity and networking challenges and open up new opportunities for business communications globally. The first satellite launch is set for 2025, with global service starting in 2026.
