Lightweight SATCOM Antenna Terminal Approved for Operation on Inmarsat's Global Xpress Network

The KaStream 5000 MK II SATCOM antenna terminal from Smiths Interconnect has been approved for operation on the Inmarsat Global Xpress network. Inmarsat is one of the leading providers of mobile satellite communications.

The lightweight KaStream 5000 MK II antenna system is a fully integrated solution that is optimized for use over the Inmarsat Global Xpress Ka-band network and supports commercial and military modems. It can be used in tail-mount, hatch-mount and roll-on roll-off installations combining the RF electronics, antenna aperture and positioning system in a single Line Replaceable Unit (LRU). This wideband, high-throughput terminal features a 12-inch diameter aperture and weighs less than 25 lbs (~11.4 kg).

Using a Global Xpress subscription (SATCOM as a Service) – the terminal provides always-available access, high-throughput, reliable, secure connectivity, anytime and anywhere. Operation on Inmarsat’s military Ka-band steerable beam ensures interoperability with military satellite systems, delivering redundancy, protection, scalability and global portability.

Global Xpress is the world’s first and only globally available, seamless, mobile wideband SATCOM service. In U.S. government operation since July 2014, it has established itself as the gold standard for reliable communications across land, air and sea for assured mobile connectivity and compatibility with government satellite systems.
