Yahsat Government Solutions (YGS) – the government division of Yahsat, UAE’s flagship satellite solutions provider – will line-fit pre-qualified Comms-On-The-Move (COTM) solutions on NIMR’s vehicular systems.
NIMR, an EDGE Group entity, manufactures combat-proven wheeled military vehicles. The agreement between the two companies was announced on Monday at the ongoing World Defense Show in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. At the Show, Yahsat and NIMR are showcasing one of Yahsat’s terminals fitted onto NIMR’s AJBAN 442A vehicle.
The two companies had signed an MoU at the International Defence Exhibition & Conference (IDEX) 2021 in Abu Dhabi, UAE last year. By pre-testing and integrating Yahsat’s COTM solutions on various connected vehicular systems, Yahsat has been able to remove risks and unwanted costs associated with system integration for its customers.
Through the agreement, Yahsat will leverage NIMR’s network and existing relationship with the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to extend its reach and increase customer acquisition. NIMR will have the opportunity to expand its value-chain and offer connected vehicles to their customer base with a secured satcom network – both Ka-band and L-band.
“At Yahsat, we understand the needs of our customers in the Defence industry and offer platform-integrated, satellite-enabled and ready-to-deploy COTM solutions. With our partners and solutions providers, we offer advanced, end-to-end, managed COTM services for complex, land-based and maritime vehicular platforms, backed by around-the-clock maintenance and support to ensure superlative performance, reliability and security…,” said Eisa Al Shamsi, General Manager, YGS.
“As the region’s leading manufacturer of combat-proven armoured vehicles, we are delighted to announce our agreement with the UAE’s global satellite services operator to equip our state-of-the-art platforms with their pioneering satcom solutions,” said Abri du Plessis, CEO, NIMR. “This strategic partnership reflects our commitment to employ the latest technologies that ensure our customers excel on the field.”
