Tim Morton, co-founder and president, NXTCOMM, commented:  "Eutelsat has proven to be  an ideal partner to help us get our new technology to market, and to help NXTCOMM validate the performance of our best-in-class antenna technology and to provide ongoing managed satellite service capacity to our customers as we scale production of our game-changing flat panel antennas."

Mike Antonovich, CEO of Eutelsat Americas, added: "We are delighted to support NXTCOMM during the critical test and implementation phase of their high-performance antenna, and look forward to supporting them for many years into the future as they develop their unique mobility solutions."
