Satellite communications have changed the world. Corporate
executives now send email, surf the web and hold video conferences
on board jets at 30,000 feet. In 2009 in earthquake-ravaged Haiti,
disaster authorities bypassed the crippled national telecoms system
and coordinated international aid, rescue operations and emergency
services through portable Cobham satellite dishes that
self-deployed from packages little larger than a suitcase.
Across the world's oceans, Cobham marine systems sit under
distinctive "golf ball" domes on thousands of ships, oil and gas
platforms and luxury yachts, automatically tracking their
designated satellite to deliver broadband web access and satellite
television, despite the roll and pitch of a vessel at sea.
Cobham has been a satellite communications market leader for 30
years. Through research and development, Cobham has often led
innovation in fields such as SATCOM On The Move, allowing users to
send and receive from vehicles moving at up to 95mph, and the
eternal quest to create antennas which are smaller, more robust and
more powerful than their predecessors.
Cobham's innovators listen to customers and design to solve
problems. Innovation with Insight acknowledges that customers want
to communicate without the need for great technical knowledge -
which is why Cobham's auto-deploy satellite dishes unfold from
their storage cases, power up, self-check and then find and
automatically track their designated satellite, all at the touch of
