To better represent its expanded offerings beyond satcom solutions, Satcom Direct has changed its brand identity to SD. In addition to satcom, SD offers secured network capabilities, air-to-ground solutions and value-added services designed to make those networks faster, more efficient and more secure.
In October 2015, SD opened its new 42,000ft² headquarters in Melbourne, Florida, USA. The move consolidated multiple locations in Satellite Beach and Melbourne into a single facility. The LEED-certified building houses a 24/7 network operations center (NOC), technologies testing lab, and research and development center.
“Our mission is to meet aircraft operators’ demands for better and more secure connectivity in both the cabin and the cockpit, wherever they fly,” said Jim Jensen, founder and CEO of SD. “The NOC enables SD to monitor the performance of our services and applications, as well as airborne network providers, facilitating our world-class support. The next generation of SD services will help synchronize the aircraft with the flight department, bringing our customers a technology platform like nothing else in the industry.”
