Ovzon works to increase interest in satellite technology in society, and encourages young people to learn more about the field in various ways by promoting external courses.
Swedish universities offer courses in the subject where the company’s employees lecture on subjects such as satellite system technology.
Good communications are vital to crucial functions regard- less of where they are in the world. Rescue personnel in extreme environments – whether tropical heat or Arctic cold – need reliable channels of communication. Ovzon’s satellite services can be decisive here. Ovzon’s technology has been proven to maintain a high level of quality regardless of atmospheric conditions and enabled rescue personnel to perform their tasks without any technical difficulties.
Ovzon’s service has long been a key component of rescue efforts in conjunction with events such as volcanic eruptions, avalanches and earthquakes where terrestrial telecommuni- cations either broke down or could not reach. With Ovzon’s satellite-based mobile communication, rescue personnel can smoothly connect to high-speed networks, thus saving lives. In 2021, Ovzon continued to assist the US Department of Defense with ultra-light mobile satellite terminals for help in various initiatives and emergency situations.
