By launching the ‘L-band Center of Excellence’, Intellian is tapping into the UK’s high-caliber talent pool, with targets to double the current employee numbers in region.

The center’s engineering excellence provides the timely opportunity to innovate new product lines for L-band, serving demand from the growing industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) sector. Alongside the digitalization of industry, this launch comes at a time when the UK space industry is also growing. The development of next-generation products at Intellian’s UK lab will serve the rising demand for satellite communications resulting from the growth of the industry.

The launch of the London headquarters builds on Intellian’s historically collaborative relationship with partners and customers, leveraging innovation to work together to overcome key customer challenges.
