Satellite communications (satcom) company Intelsat has created a new international business development unit, geared specifically towards expanding the company’s government and defence portfolio in Europe, as well as emerging markets in Africa and the Indo-Pacific region, a senior executive told Janes.

Currently, the majority of the company’s business development efforts are focused on US markets “from a government and defence sector” perspective, said Rory Welsh, vice-president of Global Government and Satellite Services, at Intelsat.

“We had some international business as well, mainly in Europe and Australia” prior to the establishment of the new Global Government business unit, he said during a 6 September interview.

However, myriad issues affecting the global satellite market, from China’s aggressive expansion in the Indo-Pacific to Russia’s ongoing war in Ukraine, have prompted a surge in demand for satellite capabilities worldwide, according to Welsh.
