Inmarsat systems are built from the ground up as a commercial complement to the government SATCOM networks

This enables the desired flexibility, security and cost-efficiency that allows government users to augment their satellite systems, anytime, anywhere.

As a commercial satellite owner/operator for nearly 40 years, Inmarsat has an unrivaled heritage of specifying, purchasing, developing, launching, deploying and operating a resilient global network encompassing a fleet of advanced multi-beam, multi-band satellites and robust ground infrastructure. Our history of commitment to safety services drives our global mobility-centric strategy, unique in the market – we cover the globe for land, sea and air services.

Inmarsat builds its systems from the ground up as a commercial satellite communication complement to the government satellite communication network. This enables the desired flexibility, security and cost-efficiency that allows government users to augment their satellite systems and access critical satellite connectivity when needed, without any upfront commitment. Inmarsat’s resilient, flexible and scalable capabilities in L-band and Ka-band Global Xpress are complementary to military satellite systems. The company continues its investments in future next-generation capabilities, Inmarsat-6, with a unique dual band payload that supports L-band and Global Xpress services. With the first satellite scheduled for launch in 2020, it is designed with technological advances that enable additional capacity and coverage.

Through this rich history of providing resilient, interoperable and scalable alternatives for government to augment its military satellite communication systems, Inmarsat Government brings innovative ways to solve architectural challenges to include variety of types of partnerships that are responsive to government requirements. We have a proven track record of success integrating special government requirements to further enhance Inmarsat commercial spacecraft. By building the requirements into our design from the ground up, we are able to provide the government the full cost and schedule savings of a commercial program and reduce the integration risk present in a traditional government-furnished hosted payload model. This allows us to work closely with our customers to rapidly develop new capabilities or to augment existing government military systems.
