The Inmarsat-5 satellites uniquely provide seamless communications coverage through fixed and steerable beams that can be adjusted in real time to accommodate demand surges.

This is the fourth Inmarsat-5 satellite Boeing has built for Inmarsat’s Global Xpress network. After reaching its final orbit, the satellite will undergo testing and checkout before being declared as operational.

“Inmarsat-5 F4 joins our existing Global Xpress constellation, which is already being adopted as the new standard in global mobile broadband connectivity by companies, governments, and communities around the world. Boeing has been an outstanding partner in our journey to make Global Xpress a reality,” said Michele Franci, CTO, Inmarsat.

“Our partnership with Inmarsat has enabled the creation of the world’s only commercial global, mobile Ka-band network,” said Mark Spiwak, president, Boeing Satellite Systems International. “This unique achievement is an example of Boeing’s continuing commitment to deliver reliable, affordable and innovative solutions for our customers.”

For the uninitiated, Boeing has a strategic marketing partnership with Inmarsat and currently provides both military and commercial Global Xpress services to the US customers.
