The expanded Dublin office represents a signal of growth for Viasat. Currently, the company has nearly 100 team members located in Dublin primarily developing innovative software for the commercial aviation industry. Viasat expects to more than double its headcount in Dublin over the next few years, and extend development beyond connected aircraft software to include broader software and mobile application support for international maritime customers, European residential broadband and Wi-Fi markets, government systems as well as support for Viasat’s next-generation ultra-high capacity satellite platform, known as ViaSat-3.

“We are expanding in Dublin as part of our overall objective to strengthen our regional service capabilities, in order to enhance our collaboration with customers and partners throughout Europe, and further build software and technology expertise in the region,” said Rick Baldridge, President and Chief Operating Officer at Viasat. “We believe the strong talent base located in Ireland will greatly expand our technical and business presence in Europe, and enable us to rapidly respond to new global broadband opportunities across a number of industry sectors.”

Over the past few years, Viasat has strengthened its commitment and grown its presence in Europe. It has formed a number of strategic partnerships as well as developed new technologies for the European satellite broadband and space industries:
