bigblu and the Ministry of Defence (MoD)

20th April 2020

We deliver KA Satellite Services to the UK Ministry of Defence for a variety of applications. They choose either our Flyaway antenna equipment or our auto-acquire systems which can be supplied as Flyaway or permanently fixed to a vehicle roof, allowing quick and easy deployment. Through this equipment we deliver connectivity for data, video or audio in even the most remote parts of the UK, Europe and North Africa.

While the MoD have their own satellite services, they also use commercial satellites when a lower cost solution is needed. We offer a ‘pay-as-you-go’ system, which is automated and cost-effective as you only pay for what you use.

We offer contended data services up to 50 Mbps downlink, and up to 10 Mbps Uplink, plus dedicated broadcast services up to 10Mbps at 1:1 either simplex or duplex. Our customers also have the option to secure these services using UK-GCHQ approved or commercial-grade encryption equipment and using our dual redundant fibre from the Teleports to their Networks.
