Global Broadband Connectivity for Ground Communications Using Small Antennas
Unanticipated “surge” requirements often call for rapid deployment of forces into areas that have little to no infrastructure. These forces rely mostly on push-to-talk radios or low-bandwidth satellite communications. Although commonly used, these methods do not satisfy the need for high-quality, high data rate bandwidth for simultaneous data, voice, and video communications to the tactical edge.
Intelsat FlexGround is a communications game changer for mobility applications requiring compact, easy-to-use terminals to rapidly respond to contingencies worldwide, from Humanitarian Assistance Disaster Relief (HADR) to combat operations.
As an end-to-end managed service, FlexGround takes the guesswork out of determining whether bandwidth will be available where and when you need it, leaving your teams free to work on their mission-critical tasks. Leveraging the Intelsat Ku-band satellite network built around the latest high-throughput satellite technology, Intelsat Epic, you’ll have access to our satellite and terrestrial network, covering 90% of the world’s population. Read our tipsheet on five key areas where FlexGround delivers ahead of the competition.
This platform provides powerful localized spot beams, multiple layers of pre-committed capacity on our Flex network for redundancy, and enhanced interference mitigation delivering the highest quality connectivity. These powerful satellites enable, for the first time, use of the smallest land mobile terminals in the most austere operating environments for data rates of up to 10 Mbps x 3 Mbps.
These grab-and-go terminals for both manpacks and Comms-on-the-Pause (COTP) easily fit in an overhead flight compartment or can be checked as baggage. Applications and systems are easy to operate and maintain, even by non-technical operators, providing wider use across the spectrum of user operations.
Designed with our customers in mind, only Intelsat General offers a multitude of pricing plans from pay-as-you-go to monthly and unlimited options as well as the capability to pool several terminals within the same subscription plan. Depend on an established pricing structure based on how many satellite resources you use, without having to pay for it when you don’t need it.
Intelsat has the highest security posture in the commercial satellite industry, meeting and/or exceeding all Department of Defense (DoD) cybersecurity standards under the Risk Management Framework, and we are the only operator with a third-party Service Organization Controls (SOC-3) accreditation through KPMG. Rely on secure and redundant communications, and take the power of interference away from hostile jammers to keep your data safe.
