Our suite of aviation services:

Global Xpress

The only commercial Ka-band network from a single operator that provides worldwide service. To assure consistent, uninterrupted connectivity, aero users benefit from a seamless spot beam architecture for maximum mobility. When there are demand surges, Global Xpress directs its steerable spot beams for additional capacity, establishing continuous, highly reliable, always-on connectivity. Global Xpress can be acquired flexibly and affordably, as an end-to-end managed service – SATCOM as a Service – with guaranteed service level agreements (SLAs) and committed information rates (CIRs) anywhere in the world for enroute, patrol and rapid deployment. Alternatively, it is available in the form of a Mil-Ka lease with terminals that are fully compatible with the WGS system for high-value platforms and surge events. Using a combination of these services affords the greatest operational flexibility and resilience to meet mission-critical requirements.
