New 46cm (18inch) Ka-band multi-purpose terminal meets pressing market need for seamless worldwide connectivity with Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).

Orbit Communication Systems Ltd. (TASE: ORBI), a leading global provider of airborne communications and satellite-tracking maritime and ground-station solutions, and Inmarsat Government, a leading provider of global mobile satellite communications and managed network services to the U.S. government, today announced an initial order from Inmarsat Government for Orbit's Multi-Purpose Terminal (MPT) 46WGX.

Orbit's MPT 46WGX is a 46cm (18inch) modular, multi-role aviation terminal designed to be fully interoperable with military Ka-band systems and optimized for use over Inmarsat's Global Xpress constellation.

The order comes on the heels of a co-development agreement signed between Inmarsat and Orbit Communication Systems, announced on March 20, 2019. Delivery of the satellite antenna systems is expected in early 2020 from Orbit's U.S.-based production facilities.

'This volume production order, by one of the largest global government satellite service providers, is a strong endorsement of our MPT concept and its capabilities,' said Stav Gizunterman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Orbit. 'Partnering with Inmarsat has greatly accelerated and enhanced our development efforts and products.'

'Our close work with Orbit Communication Systems has helped ensure rapid development of the innovative new MPT 46WGX terminal,' said Steve Gizinski, Chief Technology Officer, Inmarsat Government. 'We look forward to beginning operations with this terminal to expand interoperable connectivity solutions for highly mobile government airborne users.'
