Abu Dhabi-based Yahsat wins Dhs24m contract to build naval satcom systems

Yahsat will design, deliver and integrate advanced satellite communication solutions for Abu Dhabi Ship Building

Yahsat, the Abu-Dhabi based satellite solutions provider, has announced that its government arm, Yahsat Government Solutions (YGS), has been awarded a Dhs24m contract by Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) to provide advanced and secure satellite communication services.

Yahsat will design, deliver and integrate the satellite communication systems in vessels produced by ADSB. The company will work closely with ADSB, which specialises in new build, repair, maintenance, refit and conversion of naval and commercial vessels, to include secure and reliable end user communications solutions using YGS’ terminal over Yahsat’s wide satellite network, which is ideal for naval satellite communications.

The satellite communication systems to be commissioned on the vessels have been designed, integrated, assembled and factory tested in-house by the YGS team.

Ali Al Hashemi, group CEO at Yahsat said, “This collaboration is another key step towards advancing the nation’s long-term industrialisation strategy and serves as a testament to the leading role Yahsat is playing in building the UAE’s satellite communication and manufacturing capabilities, strengthening its position as a global hub for space science and technology.”

Yahsat, which is partly owned by Abu Dhabi state investor Mubadala, has plans to launch a new satellite in 2023 to provide advanced data services to its clients by 2024.
