Governo da Colômbia contrata satélite da Eutelsat

O Ministério da Defesa da Colômbia assinou um acordo com a Eutelsat Communications (Paris:ETL) para utilizar capacidade do satélite EUTELSAT 115 West B.

O contrato para uso de multiplos transponders é o primeiro a ser realizado pela Eutelsat e o Ministério da Defesa da Colômbia e foi consequência de um amplo acordo entre os governos da França e da Colômbia, destinado a incentivar a cooperação no contexto da celebração do ano França-Colômbia.

O governo colombiano aproveitará a excepcional cobertura do EUTELSAT 115 West B sobre a região Andina para conectar as redes do Ministério da Defesa em todo o país, usadas pelo Comando Geral das Forças Militares da Colômbia, Exército e Força Aérea.

O general José Javier Pérez Mejía, vice-ministro da Defesa da Colômbia, disse: "No interesse de uma melhor organização das redes de comunicações via satélite operadas por nossas forças de defesa, o Ministério da Defesa da Colômbia decidiu buscar um único fornecedor para atender às suas diversas necessidades. Dos países que convidamos para a concorrência, a França, através da Eutelsat, apresentou a melhor proposta econômica e técnica, levando-nos a selecionar o EUTELSAT 115 West B”.

Michel Azibert, Diretor Comercial e de Desenvolvimento da Eutelsat, acrescentou: "Este primeiro acordo com o Ministério da Defesa da Colômbia reforça nosso compromisso em trabalhar de mãos dadas com os governos de todo o mundo para oferecer soluções eficientes que combinem conectividade e segurança. Estamos muito satisfeitos em entrar nesta nova relação no contexto do ano França-Colômbia, ajudando a fortalecer as relações entre os dois países".
