In U.S. government operation since July 2014, Global Xpress develops reliable communications for land, air and sea ops for assured mobile connectivity and interoperability with government satellite systems.
The R4 MPHS is a low-profile, Ka-band integrated system that can be configured with virtually any type antenna or sensor that meets the size constraints of the MPHS. The system is fully interoperable with military Ka-band systems and optimized for use over the Global Xpress constellation.
Developed for mission-critical roll-on/roll-off requirements of the most demanding government special operations forces and other government customers, the MPHS accesses various Ka-band networks to provide enroute Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) support to airborne users on all C-130/L-100 aircraft variants.
Steve Gizinski, President, Inmarsat Government, said, “The rapidly growing military, government and commercial customer adoption of Global Xpress is a testament to its exceptional assured global mobile connectivity and seamless interoperability with military satellite resources. With R4’s MPHS, military users now have a very compact, Roll-On/Roll-Off solution to support airborne critical communications-on-the-move connectivity requirements.”
John Parsley, President of R4, noted, “Our smart, integrated, hybrid solution meets the fast-changing intel requirements of airborne forces. Inmarsat’s Global Xpress provides the peak of seamless SATCOM-On-The-Move (SOTM) operability for mission-critical operations based on our MPHS solution.”
