Inmarsat Signs L-3 Global Communications Solutions As Initial Launch Partner For Global Xpress®

Stocks in this article: ISAT

LONDON, November 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Inmarsat (LSE: ISAT), the leading provider of global mobile satellite communications services, today announced it has signed L-3 Global Communications Solutions (GCS) as an initial launch partner for land satellite terminals for its forthcoming Global Xpress ® service.

L-3 GCS is the leading supplier of VSAT terminals to USSOCOM and other elite military and government users. They bring the field-tested credibility that Global Xpress customers will be looking for when upgrading to Ka-band speed and coverage. By bringing L-3 GCS' Panther™ - and Hawkeye™-certified terminals together with Inmarsat's global managed services, customers will realize the value and flexibility of combining national MILSATCOM with on-demand commercial services under any operational scenario.

Scheduled for service introduction in 2014, Global Xpress will offer an unprecedented combination of high data rates, bandwidth and global coverage. Inmarsat's new satellite network aligns with the trend by governments worldwide to shift operations to Ka-band and will provide super-fast uplink and downlink data rates, all backed by Inmarsat quality standards, performance and global reach. Global Xpress is the only global Ka-band system of its kind and will support L-3 GCS customers who have become accustomed to highly transportable, rugged and reliable terminals for all kinds of missions. Inmarsat's ability to bring a history of reliable and trusted end-to-end global connectivity to the VSAT market will be a revolutionary improvement to today's piecemeal approach to satellite communications.

"L-3 GCS is particularly honored to have been selected as a VSAT terminal partner for Global Xpress. Our valued customers will now have access to not only the highest quality, innovative, WGS-capable VSAT terminals, but also to on-demand commercial services with the superior speed and coverage of GlobalXpress," said Bob Jacobson, president of L-3 GCS.

Inmarsat's Global Xpress partner companies will manufacture interoperable maritime, aeronautical and commercial land satellite terminals. Land terminals range from 0.6 to 2.4
