Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch, a senior vice president at Inmarsat, has listed six attributes of the company’s Global Xpress commercial satellite network intended to help fulfill requirements of mobile government users.
Cowen-Hirsch wrote in a blog post published Tuesday Global Xpress is a globally-available commercial wideband network that works to meet the U.S. government’s mobile and interoperable communication needs.
Global Xpress uses a “seamless spot beam architecture” in efforts to provide consistent connectivity when demand surges, Cowen-Hirsch added.
Global Xpress is also designed to accommodate military users’ waveform or terrestrial networks to bolster coverage of the Wideband Global SATCOM system, the blog post stated.
Cowen-Hirsch noted Inmarsat also offers Global Xpress SATCOM-as-a-Service for on-demand satellite communication services worldwide.
Global Xpress works to supplement military satcom capacity to help government agencies address costs, Cowen-Hirsch said.
The network also offers at least two ways to access multiple systems in military and commercial bands in efforts to provide flexibility and meet user requirements.
