21 July 2016 The DataPath QCT90 man-pack antenna has achieved full Inmarsat Type Approval for use on commercial Ka-band frequencies over Global Xpress (GX), Inmarsat’s globally available high-throughput wideband service.
This highly portable and simple to operate terminal has been designed with first responders and military in mind; the durable, ultra-portable terminal ensures quick connectivity in remote locations.
The terminal offers a true man-portable solution, packing into a single IATA compliant case or soft backpack.
Andy Start, President Global Government, Inmarsat said: “Enhancement of the QCT90 will allow personnel to deploy with a single terminal, confident that they have an additional level of resilience in their communications strategy, which now includes access to the global coverage offered through Inmarsat’s GX network.”
Inmarsat GX is an unprecedented plug-and-play, high-throughput satellite connectivity service that supports high definition voice, video and data applications, available globally through a single operator.
Its secure beam-to-beam handover capabilities and worldwide coverage make it ideal for global airborne, naval and land operations.
