Case Study: Finnish Defence Forces

  SigmaLink in Finland

Norsat has been working with the Finnish Defence Forces (FDF) since 2009, when we provided a satellite communication link for the Army during a European Union peace-keeping mission in Chad.  Since then we’ve expanded the network to include Navy and Air Force and improved the quality of the network, providing a more reliable service, and reducing operating costs.  This case study documents the results of our work with FDF, and provides a template for other organizations looking for cost effective, remote network communication solutions.  For the full case study, please click here.

Product Focus: Satellite Locator App for iPhone

We take customer feedback seriously at Norsat, and so when some of our customers mentioned difficulties with pointing their satellite terminals, we decided to find a solution:  Meet the new Norsat Satellite Locator App, available for Free on the App Store.  This App will assist users in locating satellites of interest, assessing obstructions and pointing satellite terminals, all from a simple iPhone interface.  For more information on using the app, and its technical specifications, please click here.

ROVER Assembly Demo Video

We like to talk about how easy it is to assemble our satellite terminals, but now we finally have some proof!   We decided to ask someone with no technical expertise to assemble a ROVER ultra-portable satellite terminal and then we documented the results.  In this demonstration, we showed our very own marketer how to assemble a ROVER once, gave her a user manual and then asked her to assemble it on camera.  You can take a look at a video of the results here.

Distributor Focus: Spectrum Communications


In order to serve our worldwide market, we use an excellent distribution network of companies, each of which bring a wealth of cultural and market knowledge to our customers.  One of our channel partners is Spectrum, a company based in China and selling into the Asia Pacific region.  To learn more about Spectrum, and how they interact with Norsat, please click here.
