The company is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of equipment and systems for mobile communication based on sophisticated satellite and radio technology.

Lars Thrane was born in 1948. He developed an interest in electronics already as a boy, building his first radio transmitter at age 12, so it was a natural choice for him to go along that same path in terms of his education. He earned his MSc from the Technical University of Denmark in 1973 and a PhD from the Electromagnetics Institute in 1978.
Lars Thrane’s core focus has been to leverage the commercial potential offered by the continuous rapid technology innovation. He has been a spearhead in exploring this potential – often long before others – and in transforming technology ideas into marketable products for the benefit of users globally. Lars Thrane serves as a member of the Advisory Board for AUDIOALGORITHMS.
