Inmarsat Global Express
Inmarsat Global Xpress is the first and only high-throughput commercial Ka-band network from a single operator that delivers worldwide service. The geostationary high-capacity Global Xpress Inmarsat-5 (I-5) satellites, designed and built by Boeing, are based on its proven 702HP platform, the industry leader for performance, cost-efficiency and capacity. Government-tested and in operation today, Global Xpress complements U.S. government satellite communications and delivers a flexible, scalable solution that enables high-throughput, seamless wideband connection, guaranteed performance via easy-to-use terminals that meet mobile, interoperable communication needs, worldwide.
Purposely built for worldwide mobility and on-demand flexibility, the Global Xpress system utilizes 72 fixed beams in commercial Ka-band, along with military Ka-band capacity available on its high-capacity steerable beams. The fixed beams enable consistent and reliable service across nearly all of the visible earth, while the steerable beams are designed to augment military Ka-band capacity.
Boeing is an authorized Value Added Reseller for Global Xpress for the U.S. government market and provides rapidly reconfigurable solutions for meeting unique missions’ needs. For more information visit:

Global Xpress high capacity beams operating in the military Ka-band allow NATO and AUSCANZUKUS users to access wideband capacity as part of their own independent network. These steerable beams are designed to augment military Ka-band capacity provided by the Wideband Global SATCOM system (WGS) to fulfill requirements and enhance flexibility of operations cost effectively. On the ground, in the air or at sea, U.S. and allied military users can steer their capacity anywhere in the world to seamlessly augment their WGS coverage.
Communication networks can be established as transponded networks in the same beam, reach-back networks through the Global Xpress Satellite Access Stations (SAS) or as a service from spot beam to spot beam. To support the Government’s unique needs, Boeing has established additional unique teleports designed with the security and maximum functionality in mind. Channel sizes are variable and can be engineered to meet your specific requirements.
Using Global Xpress’ unique High Capacity Crossover service, military users are able to connect their same WGS-approved Military Ka terminals using any DoD-certified waveform, to the same destined Point of Presence, or through Inmarsat-provided Global Xpress secure gateways.
Users have the option to filed specific technology and equipment in Global Xpress secure enclave built at Inmarsat’s SAS locations placed in NATO and Five-Eye nations. Global Xpress secure enclaves and network are able to meet National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53 High Impact category controls.
Global Xpress SATCOM as a Service
Global Xpress is provided as an end-to-end managed service everywhere — delivered by BCSS. This unique SATCOM as a Service capability offers globally mobile high-throughput connectivity the way you need it: simple, affordable and operationally available — anywhere, anytime.
Purposely designed for mobility, Global Xpress provides a continuous, consistent service anywhere in world – on land, at sea and in the air — as traffic is handed seamlessly across each spot beam. Global Xpress spot beam architecture that supports a uniform distribution of power allows for this consistent, uninterrupted connectivity. SATCOM as a Service delivers guaranteed data rates to satisfy mission requirements at a moment’s notice. With solid Service Level Agreements (SLA) and Committed Information Rates (CIR), users get what they ask for, and the quality of the acquired service is assured.
With Global Xpress end-to-end service, BCSS is bringing the throughput government customers demand, anywhere, anytime, securely and reliably.
BCSS can work alongside legacy Ku equipment to meet the needs of Government customers. Ku band offers reliable wide band service at data rates supported by 36 and 72 MHz channels.
The emergence of new High Throughput Ku systems has increased the value of the band for government customers worldwide. The proper employment of Ku capability provides a highly robust and reliable set of abilities in support of critical missions.
BCSS along with Boeing Engineering services are committed to develop the right solution to meet your mission needs.
X-band is a trusted military frequency that is available from a select group of owner-operators. BCSS has positive relationships with these operators and is able to offer X-Band solutions when needed by our Government customers.
This frequency has offered significant reliability to DoD and other military users for over 30 years, and has specifically provided critical communications for war-fighters, diplomats and humanitarian efforts. Service coverage is generally regional and supports network requirements up to 72 Mhz per channel.
With the extensive array of legacy terminal equipment already deployed worldwide, X-Band offers a solution to users that allows them to operate on equipment they have on hand with minimal-to-no new training required.
