Inmarsat, Isotropic to Develop Next Generation Mobility Antenna
Isotropic Systems has engaged in a strategic technology development agreement with Inmarsat to develop an all-electronic scanning antenna for potential use with Inmarsat’s growing constellation of high-throughput Global Xpress satellites. Isotropic Systems will produce a next generation low-cost, fully electronic tracking terminal that will allow Inmarsat to extend its reach into new market sectors.
Inmarsat is working with Isotropic Systems to develop a range of terminal solutions to further enable the company’s network of channel partners. Isotropic Systems will develop terminals specifically tailored to Inmarsat’s requirements with special focus on multi-beam capability, providing market-leading instantaneous bandwidth, as well as significantly lower pricing and power consumption. This capability will allow Inmarsat to maintain two simultaneous satellite links for capacity enhancement and seamless handovers across both existing and future Global Xpress HTS satellites.
