GovSat is a public-private joint venture between the Luxembourg government and SES, the world-leading satellite operator. Our mission is to provide secure, reliable and accessible satellite communication services for governments – addressing the demand for connectivity resulting from defence and civilian security applications. Dedicated entirely to governmental and institutional users, the GovSat-1 satellite features high-powered fully-steerable spot beams and an X-band Global beam. It is equipped with anti-jamming features, encrypted telemetry and control, and uses assured frequencies. This enables an array of applications such as connectivity for theatres of operation, interconnection of institutional or defence sites, border control, ISR, as well as various types of communications for air, land and maritime missions.
