Smallest ruggedised terminal introduced for Global Xpress

02 May 2019: Inmarsat has type approved GetSAT’s MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX terminals for use with Global Xpress.

GetSAT is a leading manufacturer of portable, extremely efficient terminals that offer high data rate communications for ground, air and maritime applications.

The new terminals are the lightest and most compact all-in-one, on-the-move solutions for Global Xpress, the world’s first and only globally available, high-throughput wideband network.

Tough environments

Leveraging GetSAT’s highly efficient, patented InterFLAT miniaturised flat panel antenna technologies, MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX are the first comms-on-the-move terminals for ground vehicles using Global Xpress. The ruggedised 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 these terminals well suited for widespread adoption in the land mobile market.

The MilliSAT-H-GX’s 25x27cm flat panel antenna fits inside a 40cm radome allowing for 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 Global Xpress terminals.

Most miniaturised

“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.”

Steve Gizinski, Chief Technology Officer, Inmarsat Government, said: “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.”
