IOT Systems was born from the exceptional talent that made COMSAT the powerhouse in satellite communications from the early 1960ís through the dawn of the 21st Century.

COMSAT, or the Communications Satellite Corporation, was established in 1962 in order to administer satellite communications to the United States. COMSAT was given responsibility for many activities including the development of a global satellite communications system, the acquisition and maintenance of ground stations around the world, and the development of new satellite technologies.

In 1967, COMSAT Laboratories was established. The Labs have been responsible for such breakthrough technical developments as coding and transmission of satellite and wireless communications, networking and multiple access, space-qualified electronics and power sources, and antennas. Modeled after the famous Bell Labs, the COMSAT Labs set the standard for leading-edge research and development and holds over 300 US patents on inventions.
