NETANYA, Israel and WASHINGTON, Jan. 14, 2020 — (PRNewswire) — Orbit Communication Systems Ltd.

The compact Multi-Purpose Terminal (MPT) 30WGX, featuring a 30-cm (12") antenna, will be able to deliver high-throughput wideband communications via the Inmarsat Global Xpress worldwide network for a broad range of airborne platforms. Built to fulfill "anytime, anywhere" connectivity requirements, the lightweight, small-footprint terminal combines high performance with Orbit's industry-leading reliability to address new opportunities in military aircraft and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Following certification, volume production of the terminal is planned for Orbit's US-based facilities.

Orbit's MPT 30WGX terminal complements its 46-cm (18") MPT 46WGX terminal, which will shortly enter full-scale production. Once certified, it will be similarly optimized for use with Inmarsat's Global Xpress system and will be interoperable with military Ka-band services, affording unique capabilities and flexibility.

"We are very pleased to continue partnering with Inmarsat to develop innovative new airborne capabilities," noted Stav Gizunterman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Orbit. "The new terminal, which complements our MPT 46WGX, will help open up service offerings to an expanded range of aircraft."

"Inmarsat is pleased to be working with Orbit to introduce innovative and forward-looking satellite solutions that support today's complex missions," said Steve Gizinski, Chief Technology Officer, Inmarsat Government. "Orbit's innovation and expansion of their MPT terminal line ensure that airborne users will have access to reliable wideband mobility for increased agility and worldwide portability."
