Satellite 2012: Viking Is a New Company with Lots of Experience
How can it be that a company that is less than two years old can boast more than 20 years of experience? Sound like one of those brain teasers they used to tell you in middle school when you had a substitute teacher? Well, in the case of Viking SATCOM, it is absolutely true.
Viking SATCOM is staffed by a crew of industry veterans, most of whom were part of Patriot (News - Alert) Antenna back in the day. When that company ceased to be, the braintrust of Patriot decided to form Viking.
According to Steve Porkornicki, VP of Sales and Marketing, this means that the company faces an uphill battle trying to get name recognition, as many customers do not immediately recognize the experience behind the new company.
Recently, the company announced new 1.8 and 2.4 meter motorized incline orbit tracking VSATs. The brand new antenna products are said to be perfect for inclined orbit tracking applications, satellite redundancy and on-demand satellite applications.
Additionally, the company has developed a series of mobile flyaway antennas that come in two or four piece packages.
Though a small company of only 12 employees based in Michigan, Viking SATCOM is determined to carve a niche for itself in the satellite industry by producing quality products based on previous successes, refining their offerings based on customer feedback.
Viking SATCOM is exhibiting at the Satellite 2012 convention being held this week at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. You can find them at booth 1324.
