L-TAC G2 Inmarsat

Inmarsat has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with L3Harris Technologies aimed at delivering the former’s Global Xpress and L-TAC satellite communications services to government customers worldwide.

The two companies seek to help radio network operators manage communications beyond line of sight through an L-band network and L3Harris-built military tactical devices, Inmarsat said Wednesday.

The L-TAC service is designed to support ultra-high and very-high-frequency radios operating on-the-move, while the GX broadband network facilitates an activation and authentication process to help users quickly begin transmitting data when used in conjunction with the Panther II very-small-aperture terminal.

The man-portable Panther II VSAT is designed to work with the GX system.

“L-TAC can ensure critical C2 communications in theatre and back to HQ on a global basis through this partnership,” said James Marley, director of Inmarsat’s government land sector.

Marley added that L3Harris has helped bring GX-supported hardware and services to the U.S. government market.
