Phasor, the leading developer of enterprise-grade, phased array antennas has been recognised as the ‘Company to Watch’ by the Mobile Satellite User’s Association (MSUA) at its annual Mobility SATCOM Innovation Award luncheon. The Awards, held in conjunction with the Satellite 2017 conference, celebrate the technical and service delivery innovations that are contributing to the development of the satellite mobility market.

“This year marks MSUA’s 25th anniversary and another year our members are at the forefront of satellite mobility innovation,” said Catherine Melquist, president of MSUA. “The awards recognise top innovations contributing to the development of the rapidly changing satellite mobility market. We look forward to continuing our legacy of fostering and highlighting innovations our members bring to the satellite mobility community of users.”

Over 100 satellite professionals attended the luncheon, representing seasoned and new mobility players, spanning the full spectrum of the mobility segment value chain. Along with Phasor, awards were also presented to Hughes, Inmarsat, Thuraya, AST and Intelsat.

“This is a terrific honour for the Phasor Team, and we are very proud to have been awarded the ‘Company to Watch’” said David Helfgott, CEO, Phasor. “Phasor’s technology is game changing and has immense potential to transform access to commercial mobile broadband while travelling across the land, at sea and in the air. We now look forward to bringing our unique electronically steerable antenna (ESA) systems to the market and making a real difference to the daily lives of individuals and businesses”.

The Phasor team has taken every aspect of the traditional parabolic SATCOM antenna and enhanced and transformed it into a unique, lightweight, very low profile, software-defined phased array antenna that fits unobtrusively onto the fuselage of an aircraft, the superstructure of a cruise-ship, or the carriage of a high-speed train. The combination of powerful feature functionality and compact, conformal form-factor will enable commercial mobile broadband communications, anywhere.
