      [Via Satellite 01-20-2015] Inmarsat Government has executed a service provider agreement with Globecomm Systems to supply Inmarsat Global Xpress service in support of U.S. government customers. Under the deal, Globecomm will offer comprehensive solutions involving network services, system integration, and end-user products and applications enabling a complete end-to-end solution for these customers.

      Inmarsat’s Global Xpress Ka-band service, designed to complement the U.S. government’s military Ka-band Wideband Global Satellite (WGS) system, offers high-throughput wideband data service. The first Global Xpress satellite, Inmarsat 5 F1 is already serving U.S. government customers in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Southwestern Asia, and worldwide coverage is anticipated to be available early in the second half of 2015.

      “Together, while MILSATCOM will remain a top priority to our government customers, we’ll offer worldwide seamless Ka-band services that can augment systems like WGS,” said Susan Miller, president and CEO of Inmarsat Government.
