Lunasat provides connectivity anywhere

A satellite connectivity company that offers communications solutions to governments in conflict regions around the world is looking to increase its range of corporate clients in the Middle East.

A satellite connectivity company that offers communications solutions to governments in conflict regions around the world is looking to increase its range of corporate clients in the Middle East.

Lunasat, which is headquartered in Beirut, has a track record of providing immediate connectivity in some of the world's most dangerous trouble spots.

As well as its office in Beirut, Lunasat has offices in Iraq and the company was the first to install satellite communications in the post-war country, says Peter Samaha, VP marketing for business development.

"We're used to serving war-torn countries, and we know exactly what a client needs. When you have been there and done it, you know that you cannot make a client wait," he says.

Samaha says governments are the "first and foremost" users of the technology, with emergency services and disaster recovery centres also big users. Through its presence at GULFCOMMS, it hopes to add clients, particularly in the oil and gas sectors.
