After launching SatSleeve for the iPhone, the Dubai-based operator says it wants to further pioneer ‘state-of-the-art’ solutions in the satellite industry, and has thus created the new division to spearhead initiatives for the implementation of innovation in products, services, and business models.
Thuraya says that global recruitment efforts are underway to find its new head of Innovation. Until a suitable candidate is recruited, the role is filled on an interim basis by CEO Samer Halawi.
“Thuraya has a considerable track record in the land voice/data sector. We see great opportunities to further innovate in the maritime sector which will be one of the product lines that our new Innovation Division will be focused upon,” Mr Halawi told Digital Ship.
