Press release from: QuadSAT
Posted: Tuesday March 8th 2022

QuadSAT’s system for testing and calibrating antennas has been nominated for Via Satellite’s 2021 Satellite Technology of the Year Award. Nominees are chosen based on innovation, industry benefits and overall disruption to the satellite landscape.

Mark Holmes, Editor, Via Satellite, said: “The Satellite Technology of the Year award, which has been around for less than five years, is going from strength to strength. We had a record number of companies participating in the process and the competition was fierce. There are so many great tech stories in our industry, that asking us to pick just one gets harder every year. Our industry has wonderful strength at depth, from seasoned tech companies to those just starting up and trying to shake up the established order.

QuadSAT’s drone-based system provides users with flexible and accurate antenna test and calibration. A wide range of test missions can be undertaken, depending on user requirements, and antennas can be tested regardless of location. The system provides pre- and post-flight software to ensure repeatability, automated measurements, ease of use, and data delivery in a uniform format.

The 2021 Satellite Technology of the Year winner will be determined by a combination of the Via Satellite’s editorial team, including Editorial Director, Mark Holmes, and votes coming directly from the industry. The public can vote for QuadSAT’s system for antenna testing and calibration in line.

Joakim Espeland, CEO of QuadSAT, said, “With our drone-based system, we aim to improve the accessibility of antenna testing, providing a cost-effective way to deliver reliable testing. The Via Satellite Satellite Technology of the Year awards are widely regarded as prestigious accolades, so we are especially proud to have made the shortlist. This is the perfect time for us as we are currently increasing our Series A investment round and we look forward to the awards ceremony at SATELLITE 2022.”

From the host of the prestigious “Satellite Executive of the Year Award”, Via Satellite has a long history of recognizing the people who lead the charge in the satellite industry.

Voting ends at noon ET on March 22. The winner will be announced at SATELLITE 2022 on Wednesday, March 23 at the Via Satellite Awards Luncheon, which is open to all conference-level attendees. Subscribe to SATELLITE here and the press can record here.
