Tring, UK – Ultra Intelligence & Communications has been granted approval by Inmarsat, the world leader in global mobile satellite communications, to operate its new Ultra GigaSat ULV-950mp terminal over the Inmarsat Global Xpress network.
The Global Xpress network is the world’s first and only, globally available, seamless mobile wideband service. In U.S. government operation since July 2014, Global Xpress has established itself as the gold standard for reliable communications across land, air and sea for assured mobile connectivity and interoperability with government satellite systems.
The new Ultra GigaSat ULV-950mp terminal is a leader in size, weight, power and enhanced performance requirements. The terminal’s robust (MIL-STD-810G certified), compact and ultra-light design allow troops to establish a communications capability in the field of operation, facilitating mission-critical communications between soldiers in the field and command and control.
The Ultra GigaSat ULV-950mp terminal allows a single individual to set up and operate the terminal with no tools or special equipment required. Featuring an auto-assist display, the terminal can be up and running in less than five minutes, making it ideal for high-pressure and harsh environments. In addition to the built-in iDirect 950mp modem, the solution includes additional external RF ports, making it modem agnostic for maximum deployment flexibility. Its Tri-band (Ka, Ku and X-band) capability allows terminal operators to change frequency bands in the field, maximising modularity mission performance.
Trevor Vizard, Deputy Global Sales Director for Ultra’s SATCOM solutions, commented, “The Ultra GigaSat ULV-950mp satellite terminal is the most compact and powerful multi-certified, multi-bearer, multi-frequency solution we’ve launched to date and certification for Inmarsat’s Global Xpress network is a strategically important milestone for Ultra’s SATCOM GigaSat solutions. The addition of the Inmarsat GX network provides flexibility and delivers the world’s most advanced mobile satellite communication services for our global customer base.”
Matt Wissler, Chief Technical Officer, Inmarsat Government commented, “We are pleased to add the Ultra GigaSat ULV-950mp satellite terminal to our rich portfolio of highly reliable user terminals for Global Xpress. With ULV-950mp, land expeditionary users now have access to Inmarsat’s always-on, secure wideband connectivity anywhere they need to operate.”
