A future-proofed service

Thanks to an unrivalled and fully-funded technology roadmap, GX Aviation is both adaptable and scalable, so it can quickly and efficiently meet the coming needs of aviation. In the near future, airlines will benefit from a series of major enhancements to our Global Xpress network, with the current constellation of five satellites being boosted by seven additional payloads, representing a transformative step-change in inflight broadband capabilities.

This upcoming GX6A and 6B satellites will augment global coverage with greater depth of capacity in regions of greatest demand. Next, the ground-breaking GX7, 8 & 9 satellites will be more powerful, flexible and scalable than any before, using dynamic beamforming to target thousands of individual beams in real time (backed by predictive AI). These will be followed by the innovative new GX10A & 10B Arctic payloads, which will be the world’s first and only mobile, broadband payloads dedicated to this region and a perfect match for aircraft flying in higher elevations and across the Arctic.
