About XTAR

In the congested world of satellite communications, XTAR is unique in mission and focus: we are a commercial satellite operator, yet provide communications solely to military and government users.

Offering connectivity in the X-band frequency range via two satellite payloads, XTAR provides full MILSATCOM compatibility, ideal for military enterprise communications, special operations missions, information gathering and border security.

In 2019, Hisdesat announced that it will construct two additional satellites through which XTAR will provide service in the X, Mil-Ka and UHF frequency bands.

Founded in 2001, XTAR is privately owned by majority shareholder Loral Space & Communications Inc. and minority shareholder Hisdesat Servicios Estratégicos S.A.
