Australian ASX-listed mobile satellite technology firm Beam Communications has signed deal with Indian satellite solutions company Station Satcom to resell Beam-branded Inmarsat equipment in the country.

Station Satcom has already sold about US$250,000 worth of Bean equipment since January, and Wednesday's announcement was a formalisation of the partnership, a statement said.

The Indian Government approved the sale and use of satellite devices on the Inmarsat satellite network, the only global satellite service allowed to operate in the country, last year.

Beam's docking stations are the only Inmarsat-approved docking units in the world and the Oceana 800 fixed-satellite phone is the lone device of its kind running on the Inmarsat GPS Service.

Station Satcom chief executive Anshul Khanna said: "“We are excited to have signed a reseller agreement with Beam after seeing such strong initial demand for its products in India.

“Station Satcom has chosen to partner with Beam for its strong brand recognition in the industry and its long track record in developing and manufacturing reliable and high-quality satellite devices for global satellite network operators.”

Beam's equipment division recorded a 30% rise in sale in the first- half of FY2019 and the company said it was hopeful that the Indian deal would make a strong contribution to ongoing growth.

Inmarsat launched its Indian GSPS Gateway in 2017, enabling government and private sector customers to access its satellite phone services via Inmarsat’s fourth-generation constellation.

The gateway will enable the Indian Government to provide secure communications to defence services, commercial enterprises, the maritime industry and India’s remote communities.
