Aerosatcom, a joint-venture company formed in September 2015 by aeronautical satcom specialist Eclipse and independent satcom provider NSSLGlobal, has been appointed as a value-added reseller (VAR) for Inmarsat’s new Global Xpress (GX) service, focusing on the government market. Aerosatcom will resell Inmarsat airtime (L-band and Ka-band) and work closely with Inmarsat on the design, delivery and certification of government aero solutions.
“The government market for commercial satellite communications is, necessarily, a complex one. It comes with its own unique challenges, combined with the requirement for globally available, secure, seamless and flexible connectivity,” said Andy Start, president, Inmarsat Global Government.
“To build business in this environment, especially for a completely new service such as Global Xpress, requires channel partners with the right experience, expertise and depth of resources. Aerosatcom, which is able to draw upon the expertise of two established industry players, is aligned perfectly with our strategy to grow the military, VVIP and head-of-state aero markets, offering the unique combination of our L-band SwiftBroadband service and our new high-speed, Ka-band global broadband service.”
