Airbus and SES demo high-speed connectivity for French Navy using O3b satellites

In the framework of a contract with the DGA, integrator and global operator Airbus recently carried out a successful sea trial on board aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle, satisfying the French Navy's need for satellite communications at very high speed and low latency to cope with ever-increasing data exchanges.

During a two-week pilot landing qualification training, the companies provided guaranteed carrier-grade high-performance connectivity via SES’s O3b MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) link, allowing the Charles de Gaulle crew to access new services for the first time while on a mission out at sea.

The demo was made possible thanks to the close collaboration of Airbus, the DIRISI (Joint Directorate of Infrastructure Networks and Information Systems), the DGA, and the French Navy, as well as SES.
