Thuraya's ambitions in the aero sector have been boosted thanks to a successful demonstration today. In partnership with SCOTTY, a developer of beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) satellite communication solutions based in Austria, Thuraya has conducted a live demonstration of its Aero Mobility capabilities platform – Thuraya Aero, replicating a real-time ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance) mission over satellite communications to key government customers.
The technology demonstration aimed to highlight the reliability and effectiveness of Thuraya's Aero solution for various ISR operations associated with border patrol, maritime and environmental protection, in addition to disaster relief missions. The Aero service is available within Thuraya's satellite footprint, covering more than 160 countries across the Middle East, Asia, Europe, Africa and Australia regions.
"By fulfilling the growing requirements for secure, always-on mobile satellite communications on land, at sea and in air, we are looking to expand our strong partnership with the UAE government. Today's successful demonstration is a testament towards Thuraya's capability to providing reliable aero mobility solutions to our global customers," said Ali Al Hashemi, Thuraya's CEO.
