Since Geckle’s selection to the Wash100, Airbus U.S. subsidiary Tesat established a public sector business in the United States to foster closer partnerships with government customers in response to an increasing need for satellite equipment production.
Tesat will be producing laser communication terminals, or LCTs, which Geckle described in a recent interview with Executive Mosaic as “really important because they allow very high data transmission of information with very low latency, and they’re very difficult to jam.”
“So in terms of intersatellite communications or communications to other nodes of a network within JADC2, these are going to be really important. We see some really discriminating technology that we have that we’re going to Americanize, industrialize and deliver to the DOD,” he elaborated.
Executive Mosaic congratulates Rob Geckle and the entire Airbus U.S. team on their 2023 Wash100 recognition.
