GetSAT's MilliSAT Terminals Receive Inmarsat's Blessings for Use with Global Xpress

GetSAT has announced that Inmarsat has type approved GetSAT’s MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX for use on the Global Xpress service.

These new terminals are 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 miniaturized flat panel antenna technologies, MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX are the first Communications-On-The-Move (COTM) terminals for ground vehicles using the worldwide Global Xpress network. These ruggedized terminals have been proven to operate in some of the toughest environmental conditions. Their combination of size, weight, and fast-tracking technology allows for operation on land-mobile and maritime platforms with aggressive vehicle dynamics.

Size and weight limitations have traditionally been a challenging requirement for land-mobile SATCOM applications. The size and weight of the MiliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX make them well suited for widespread adoption in the land mobile market. 

MilliSAT-H-GX’s 25x27 cm. flat panel antenna fits inside a 40 cm. radome allowing easy installation. Additionally, the terminals’ low power consumption allows for battery operation, adding greatly to their flexibility. With industry leading SWaP (Size, Weight and Power), the units set a new standard for small, Inmarsat type-approved for SATCOM terminals used with Global Xpress.

GetSAT CEO, Kfir Benjamin, said the company is pushing the innovation envelope in creating — and constantly delivering — the industry. The firm's mission is to craft micronized technologies to support a small flat panel to enable the company's team to consistently find new ways to successfully reduce terminal size, while maintaining strength and power. The MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX terminals were developed to meet Inmarsat’s exacting standards and provide users with ease of use.

Steve Gizinski, CTO, Inmarsat Government, added that 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.
