Sasken Communication Technologies Ltd has signed a pact with satellite communications firm Inmarsat to complete the development of the next generation global hand-held satellite phone.

Inmarsat has chosen Sasken to design and bring into pre-production the complete phone, which would include the hardware component comprising design, development & testing of antenna, RF and mechanical elements and the software component comprising protocol stacks, application framework and test lab offerings. The handset would undergo the necessary certification processes confirming its fitness for the global market.

This engagement, according to Sasken, is a first for an Indian company to be involved from the design phase up to producing pre-production units.

The new Inmarsat satellite phone will offer voice services to remote parts of the world and the target customer segment will include field and aid operations, and other private and government agencies giving them reach and capability throughout the world.
