TYSONS CORNER, VA, December 30, 2019 — Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch, senior vice president of government strategy and policy at Inmarsat Government, said the company added a satellite to the Global Xpress constellation to address a demand for commercial broadband services in the Middle East and Europe, ExecutiveBiz reported Dec. 20.

C4ISRNET reported Dec. 19 Cowen-Hirsch noted that military organizations seek commercial Ka-band satellite connectivity that works to complement the Wideband Global SATCOM system.

The Global Xpress 5 satellite was launched on Nov. 26 and is slated to join the fleet early next year.

“GX5, adding to that mix, looks at an area where we’ve got increased and significant demand,” Cowen-Hirsch was quoted as saying. “It is a very, very dense environment for commercial as well as military. So we’ve got a satellite that was specifically put to cover that particular region.”
