Cobham Satcom (Booth M87) recently appointed Jianmin Cui to the new role of regional sales director for China with its aeronautical sales team. The Denmark-based satellite communications specialist sees strong prospects for growth in China’s general aviation market; the Shanghai-based sales executive will also focus on the air transport sector. The group’s main product is the Aviator SwiftBroadband series of communications systems.
Cobham is now Cobham Satcom (Booth No. 1773), an amalgam of Cobham and the Danish satcom company Thrane & Thrane, which it acquired earlier this year, the company said in an announcement at NBAA’12. “As the demand for airborne, land-mobile and maritime satellite communications continues to increase we are working hard to make it easier for customers to buy from us a wider range of satcom equipment and integrated solutions,” said Richard Tyson, president of the Cobham Aerospace and Security division that includes the new company.
