Airbus Defense and Space has added Planet Communications Asia Public (PlanetComm) to its channel partner programme for Skynet 5 military satellite communication services and expanded the partnership with Speedcast. Under this channel partner agreement, both PlanetComm and Speedcast will be offering Skynet X-band and UHF services as part of their extensive satellite communications portfolios.

Airbus Defense and Space owns and operates the hardened Skynet X-band satellite constellation of seven satellites and the ground network to provide all Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) communications to the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence. The contract also allows other NATO and allied governments such as members of the five-eyes community (besides United Kingdom, the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Canada) to use the Skynet system to augment their existing services.
