Odense, Denmark, 22nd February– Quadsat, a specialist provider of UAV-based RF measurement solutions, has appointed Karina Bergstrøm Larsen as its new Chairman of the Board.
Karina joins Quadsat with a rich and proven background in the satellite industry, having founded and scaled her own successful company, before orchestrating a triumphant exit to Honeywell Aerospace. Karina is now an independent consultant for satellite and aerospace, as well as putting her time into mentoring and encouraging girls to follow a career in STEM.
Karina’s appointment comes as Torben Frigaard Rasmussen transitions from his role as Chairman, following his instrumental role in securing a significant Series A funding round of €9 million for Quadsat last year. His leadership has been pivotal in setting the stage for Quadsat’s expansion and technological advancements. Torben continues to stay closely related to Quadsat as shareholder and trusted advisor.
Commenting on the transition, Torben Frigaard Rasmussen remarked: “I am immensely proud of the progress Quadsat has made under my stewardship. Karina’s appointment marks an exciting new chapter for the company, and I have full confidence in her ability to lead Quadsat to even greater success.”
Karina Bergstrøm Larsen added: “Quadsat has developed a game-changing technology for the satcoms industry and has already gained a lot of interest and traction. Having known the team at Quadsat for a number of years, I know we have a shared passion and dedication to innovation and excellence. I am looking forward to working with the team to ramp up the commercial growth.”
Quadsat’s unique testing solution is democratizing accurate test and optimization, enabling network owners to ensure world-class performance for their customers at all times. This cost-effective, scalable, and precise method is simplifying antenna testing, while making it globally available.

As we move onto the next stage, I am excited to be working with Karina.
