Satcom Direct Expands Service Portfolio, Evolves its Brand


NBAA, Las Vegas | November 16, 2015– To better represent its expanded offerings beyond satellite communications solutions, Satcom Direct has changed its brand identity to SD.

The move stems from the company’s ongoing technology advancements and strategic partnerships, which have broadened its capabilities as a global connectivity provider. In addition to SATCOM, SD offers secured network capabilities, air-to-ground solutions, and value-added services to make those networks faster, more efficient and more secure. The company name will remain Satcom Direct, while using the “SD” mark and initials to represent its evolution as a company.

“From the beginning, SD has been an innovator, delivering numerous technology advancements to business aviation and government customers. We received a patent for our very first product, the Global One Number®, and we’ve continued to bring new technologies to the marketplace. We’ve been Satcom Direct since 1997, and now we’re even more,” said Jim Jensen, SD founder and CEO.

More than a satellite communications provider, SD delivers global connectivity via services that enable clients to use satellite, air-to-ground and 3G cellular networks, seamlessly, via its exclusive router the SDRTM. Proprietary value-added enhancements accelerate data, improve voice call quality, and enable use of smartphones at any altitude, anywhere in the world.

Along with significant additions to its product portfolio, in October, SD celebrated its latest milestone with the grand opening of its new state-of-the-art 42,000-sq-ft world headquarters in Melbourne, Florida. The move consolidated multiple locations in Satellite Beach and Melbourne into a single, larger, more efficient facility. The LEED certified building houses a 24/7 network operations center (NOC), technologies testing lab, and advanced research and development center.

“Our mission is to meet aircraft operators’ demands for better and more secure connectivity in both the cabin and the cockpit, wherever they fly. The NOC enables SD to monitor the performance of our services and applications, as well as airborne network providers, facilitating our world class support. The next generation of SD services will help synchronize the aircraft with the flight department, bringing our customers a technology platform like nothing else in the industry,” Jensen said.
