Inmarsat is the world leader in global mobile satellite communications.
Inmarsat were the first satellite operator to meet the stringent requirements of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for global safety communications.
Today Inmarsat have the world’s most advanced and resilient mobile connectivity infrastructure to ensure that their satellite services are not only saving lives but also providing a connectivity lifeline in the most remote and challenging locations.
Inmarsat serve aviation, maritime, government and enterprise markets with an unparalled portfolio of services and solutions. Their customers range from airlines and shipping fleet operators to the military and aid agencies, and a host of commercial enterprises, from mining and logistics to agritech. What they all share in common is the need for highly reliable connectivity, no matter where they are.
Inmarsat owns and operates 14 satellites in geostationary orbit 35,786km (22,236 miles) above the Earth.
Inmarsat’s geostationary satellites deliver their award-winning operational, safety and mission-critical connectivity services to organisations, governments and individuals around the world.
Operating in the L-band, Ka-band and S-band, Inmarsat’s satellites enable unparalleled breadth and diversity in the services they provide.
Inmarsat owns and operates the world’s most reliable L-band satellite network. Inmarsat’s BGAN, FleetBroadband and SwiftBroadband voice and data and Internet of Things (IoT) machine-to-machine (M2M) services deliver connectivity anywhere. With the arrival of 5G, satellite communications will play an important part in transforming the way we live and work, by extending coverage and new capabilities into the seas, the skies and rural and remote areas to power an always-on global digital society.
Every day, Inmarsat’s long-trusted safety services – the cornerstone of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) and approved by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) – help keep millions of seafarers and airline passengers safe with unrivalled satellite and ground network availability of 99.9%.
Inmarsat’s award-winning Inmarsat-4 (I-4) fleet of satellites established the world’s first global 3G mobile network. Launched between 2005 and 2008, the first three I-4s were built by an international team from the United Kingdom, France, Germany, the USA and Canada. With each satellite able to generate up to 19 wide beams and more than 200 narrow spot beams, the I-4s introduced always-on, seamless high-speed connectivity to every corner of the world. In 2013 Inmarsat launched Alphasat to supplement the I-4 fleet, providing coverage over Europe, the Middle East and Africa and bringing new capabilities including 50 per cent more accessible L-band spectrum and nearly 20 per cent more mobile communication channels.
As Inmarsat move into the ultrafast 5G world, the development of their L-band network will continue to meet the mobile connectivity needs of their customers. Inmarsat’s sixth generation hybrid satellites are unique in featuring both L-band and Global Xpress (Ka-band) payloads and will support a new wave of capabilities as well as global safety services into the 2040s. Two satellites are being constructed in the UK by Airbus Defence and Space. The first is scheduled for launch with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) in 2021.
Global Xpress (GX), operating in the Ka-band, is the first and only high-speed mobile broadband network to seamlessly span the world. Inmarsat’s market-leading service delivers the high bandwidth and reliability their customers demand.
The GX1-GX4 satellites were built by US manufacturer Boeing, based on its powerful 702HP platform. The first three GX satellites were launched between 2013-2015, with global commercial service starting in December 2015. GX4 was launched in May 2017 to provide additional capacity.
GX5 – a Very High Throughput Satellite (V-HTS) constructed by Thales Alenia Space – delivers more capacity than the entire GX1-GX4 fleet combined. It launched in November 2019 to meet growing demand across Europe and the Middle East, in particular for aviation Wi-Fi and commercial maritime services.
The future of Global Xpress
GX6A & 6B
The advanced Ka-band payloads on Inmarsat’s sixth generation satellites – GX6A & GX6B – will add further depth to Global Xpress coverage, with targeted spotbeams delivering greater capacity when and where there is increased demand.
GX7, 8 & 9
The next generation of Global Xpress satellites, due to be launched from 2023, represents a step change in the evolution of GX’s capabilities, capacity and agility.
With a far quicker design and build time for the GX7, 8 & 9 satellites, manufactured by Airbus Defence & Space, Inmarsat can keep pace with changes in customer demand and drastically reduce the cost of delivering more.
Each powering around twice the total capacity of the entire current GX network, these software-defined satellites will simultaneously create thousands of independent beams of different sizes, bandwidth and power that can be reconfigured and repositioned across the globe in real time. Customers already signed up to Global Xpress will be able to enjoy this massive boost in performance using their existing terminals.
