Get SAT and Inmarsat Introduce Market’s Smallest Ruggedized Terminal for Global Xpress


Milli SAT-H-GX and Milli SAT-W-GX Ka-band Miniaturized Terminals Support Land and Maritime Communications-on-The-Move Requirements


02 May 2019 -- Get SAT, a leading manufacturer of portable extremely efficient terminals that offer high data-rate communications for ground, air, and maritime applications, and Inmarsat, the world leader in global,  mobile satellite communications, have today announced that Inmarsat has type-approved GetSAT’s MilliSAT-H-GX and MilliSAT-W-GX for use on its Global Xpress service.


These new terminals are the lightest and most compact all-in-one, on-the-move solutions serving the Global Xpress network, the world’s first and only globally available, high-throughput wideband network.


Leveraging Get SAT’s highly efficient, patented InterFLAT miniaturized flat panel antenna technologies, Milli SAT-H-GX and Milli SAT-W-GX are the first communications-on-the-move terminals for ground vehicles using the worldwide Global Xpress network. These ruggedized terminals have been proven to operate in some of the toughest environmental conditions. Their combination of size, weight, and fast-tracking technology allows for operation on land-mobile and maritime platforms with aggressive vehicle dynamics.


Size and weight limitations have traditionally been a challenging requirement for land-mobile SATCOM applications. The size and weight of the Mili SAT-H-GX and Milli SAT-W-GX make them well suited for widespread adoption in the land mobile market.


Milli SAT-H-GX’s 25x27cm flat panel antenna fits inside a 40cm radome allowing easy installation. Additionally, the terminals’ low power consumption allows for battery operation, adding greatly to their flexibility. With industry-leading SWaP (Size, Weight, and Power), the units set a new standard for small, Inmarsat type-approved for SATCOM terminals used with Global Xpress.


“Get SAT is pushing the innovation envelope in creating – and constantly delivering – the industry’s most miniaturized terminals for airborne, ground, and maritime on-the-move applications,” said Get SAT CEO, Kfir Benjamin. “Our mission to craft micronized technologies to support a small flat panel enables our team to consistently find new ways to successfully reduce terminal size while maintaining strength and power. Our Milli SAT-H-GX and Milli SAT-W-GX terminals were developed to meet Inmarsat’s exacting standards and provide users with ease of use.”


“Designed for worldwide mobility, Global Xpress has drawn a significant number of commercial and government customers due to its unique reliability, ease of use, and seamless interoperability with military satellite resources.  With the Inmarsat type approval of Get SAT’s terminals, ground and maritime on the move users have access to a very compact terminal to support their critical connectivity requirements,” said Steve Gizinski, Chief Technology Officer, Inmarsat Government.
