Mangata makes Singapore maritime global HQ

Mangata Networks has established its Maritime Global Headquarters (MGHQ) in Singapore.

With support from the Office for Space Technology and Industry, Singapore (OSTIn,) MGHQ will enable the development of vital technology, enhance Singapore’s position as a key player in the space industry, and support the rapid growth of Mangata’s operations in the region.

It will create business and technology, such as an end-to-end simulation and development lab, a maritime commercial testbed, maritime edge and service applications development platform, and a state-of-the-art systems infrastructure R&D centre providing data and continuous feedback for satellite and ground network optimisation to support Mangata’s satellite constellation.

The technology developed will augment Singapore’s growth in the globally competitive maritime industry.

Over the next three years, MGHQ will support the creation of a large number of highly skilled jobs and offer training and knowledge-transfer opportunities to the local workforce.

Founded in 2020, Mangata Networks is a satellite-enabled network and edge computing services company that combines a proprietary highly elliptical orbit and medium earth orbit constellation, which bundles backhaul connectivity with intelligent MangataEdge micro data centres.
