May 3, 2019
GetSAT, a manufacturer of portable terminals that offer high data-rate communications for ground, air and maritime applications, and Inmarsat, the global player in global, mobile satellite communications, have announced that Inmarsat has type approved GetSAT’s MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX for use on its Global Xpress service.
These new terminals are said to be the lightest and most compact all-in-one, on-the-move solutions serving the Global Xpress network, the world’s first and only globally available, high-throughput wideband network.
Leveraging GetSAT’s patented InterFLAT miniaturised flat panel antenna technologies, MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX are communications-on-the-move terminals for ground vehicles using the worldwide Global Xpress network.
“GetSAT is pushing the innovation envelope in creating – and constantly delivering – the industry’s most miniaturised terminals for airborne, ground and maritime on-the-move applications,” said GetSAT CEO, Kfir Benjamin. “Our mission to craft micronised technologies to support a small flat panel enables our team to consistently find new ways to successfully reduce terminal size while maintaining strength and power. Our MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX terminals were developed to meet Inmarsat’s exacting standards and provide users with ease of use.”
“Designed for worldwide mobility, Global Xpress has drawn a significant number of commercial and government customers due to its unique reliability, ease of use, and seamless interoperability with military satellite resources. With the Inmarsat type approval of GetSAT’s terminals, ground and maritime on the move users have access to a very compact terminal to support their critical connectivity requirements,” added Steve Gizinski, Chief Technology Officer, Inmarsat Government.
