Delivering seamless, resilient wideband connectivity worldwide
Operating worldwide today, Global Xpress complements government satellite communications (SATCOM) and provides optimal redundancy, diversity, security, scalability and global portability — the ultimate resilience approach.
U.S. government users operate on a worldwide basis and require flexible, secure connectivity that travels with them. This is why they continue to rely on Inmarsat Government and its global, trusted network. Global Xpress is the first and only commercial wideband network that delivers worldwide service, offered by a single operator. Available and in use by government users in all three-ocean regions, Global Xpress brings the benefits of highly reliable, high-throughput satellite capability to respond to mobile, interoperable communication needs.
Inmarsat’s SATCOM as a Service business model allows for rapid delivery of proven technology that covers satellites, ground infrastructure and terminals. This on-going innovation provides a fast, cost-effective solution to U.S. government’s critical need for resilience, speed and agility to ensure mission success today and in the future.
The next evolution of Global Xpress – the most resilient and flexible global mobile communications network
The next generation of Global Xpress (GX7, 8 & 9 satellites) with the first satellite scheduled to launch in H1 2023, once again provides ground-breaking innovation to anticipate and match accelerating worldwide demand for government mobile connectivity. It redefines Inmarsat’s renowned global mobile communications and seamlessly integrates increased diversity, redundancy, interoperability and resilience to a government architecture without additional infrastructure investment from end users.
Backed by the most advanced cybersecurity features of any global network, the next phase of Global Xpress evolution will deliver dynamically-formed beams that enable agile and precise allocation of ultra high-power capacity over high-demand areas and allow for superior interference resistance. This innovative software-defined global architecture with GEO satellites has flexible payloads that can be relocated when and where required across the geostationary arc and connect to any Inmarsat software-defined ground network node, enabling higher throughput speeds and flexible and dynamic capacity scaling based on user-specific resource demands.
In addition, Inmarsat is expanding its Global Xpress network into the Arctic region, meeting rapidly growing demand among government customers for seamless high-speed mobile broadband services in the Arctic and throughout the world. Importantly these payloads will provide mil-Ka capacity, complementing military satellite resources, cost effectively for optimal redundancy, protection, scalability and global portability.
