GIT Satellite Communications (GIT) has become an Iridium Certus service provider and will support U.S. government customers with hardware platforms, airtime, and data services. This is an expansion of services for GIT, a long-time Iridium government service provider.
GIT develops value-added solutions for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), U.S. federal government, and enterprise organizations. It currently provides narrowband voice and data services, and is now expanding its offering with Certus L-band broadband and midband connectivity. GIT also offers voice and data compression software to support the most efficient Iridium Certus application solutions for DoD users.
“2023 will be an exciting year for GIT with the addition of Iridium Certus’ mission critical capabilities for government and the modern warfighter,” said GIT Satellite President and CEO Ginger Washburn. “We look forward to providing this critical connectivity to further support government and DoD personnel.”
GIT is headquartered in Austin, Texas, and its offerings cover other satellite systems and constellations, including Inmarsat and Intelsat. The company's product offering includes a range of satellite terminals to enable satellite voice and data communications.
