About Viasat

Viasat is a global communications company that believes everyone and everything in the world can be connected. On May 31, 2023, Viasat completed its acquisition of Inmarsat, combining the teams, technologies and resources of the two companies to create a new global communications partner. 

Viasat, through it’s newly acquired company Inmarsat, was the first satellite operator to meet the stringent requirements of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for global safety communications. 

With offices in 24 countries around the world, their mission shapes how consumers, businesses, governments and militaries around the world communicate and connect. Viasat is developing the ultimate global communications network to power high-quality, reliable, secure, affordable, fast connections to positively impact people's lives anywhere they are—on the ground, in the air or at sea, while building a sustainable future in space. 

Viasat is the core operator of the overall Iris infrastructure; the Viasat systems supporting the Iris service fall under the EASA continuous oversight supported by ESSP.
