GapSat Signs Ku/Ka Band Long Term Service Agreement with QSTC Inc. of Canada

QSTC Inc. of Canada, announced the signing of an agreement with GapSat Development Group Ltd. for the provision of turnkey Ku- and Ka-band services using a dedicated small Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellite to be known as GapSat-A. Under the scope of the agreement, QSTC is the prime contractor responsible for delivering the services, based on the use of its fully electric satellite platform, Sigma 1, with a fully processed payload together with satellite control and ground segment.

GapSat decided to enter into this agreement with QSTC, because until now significant customer demand could not be met at short notice. GapSat-A, through its highly flexible payload covering all the frequencies in the Ku- and Ka-bands, and its ability to relocate at high speeds, between missions will allow GapSat to address this pent-up demand. GapSat was advised by GH Partners of New York.

Gurvinder Chohan, CEO of QSTC said “We are honored and grateful to our customer GapSat demonstrating their confidence in the highly skilled and experienced team of QSTC and its partners, to develop these advanced solutions.”

Gregg Daffner, CEO of GapSat said "We are delighted to work with QSTC, to deliver highly cost-effective, next generation telecommunications services to meet the business needs of our customers and facilitate affordable access to communication for multiple communities.
