Satcom Direct provides global satellite communications to business aviation, military aviation – including to Heads of State, NATO and the Department of Defense – general aviation, land mobile and maritime customers.


This year, Satcom Direct and netDirective Technologies (now ndtArtemis) developed a Center for Excellence that will headquarter business operations for both companies.  Phase I of the Center for Excellence is scheduled to be completed in January 2013.  When done, this new campus will be a $15 million investment into Brevard County.


The two companies currently employ about 160 people; Satcom Direct has hired approximately 50 employees in the past eighteen months.


“Our headquarters on the Space Coast remain a key location for our growth.  With our latest expansion of our new Data Center and Campus of Excellence in Brevard County we will strengthen our services currently offered and provide the expertise and experience required to serve our customers in the U.S. and international markets.”
