The Inmarsat global satellite communications network is the premier provider of two-way voice and data services for aircraft operating virtually anywhere in the world. Satcom Direct is proud to be Inmarsat’s largest aeronautical service provider.

Global Xpress (GX)

Inmarsat’s Global Xpress delivers seamless, globally available high-speed broadband connectivity anywhere you fly, from one operator. It is the first high-speed broadband satellite network to span the world changing the paradigm for business aviation communications.

The GX constellation is a network of three Ka-band, high-speed, mobile broadband communication satellites. The three satellites provide the coverage required to deliver global services. Global Xpress is the Ka-band technology that supports Jet ConneX.

Swift 64

Swift 64 delivers high-quality voice and circuit-switched Mobile ISDN data. The service offers ‘always-on’ data at up to 64kbps per channel, ample bandwidth for flight planning, weather and chart updates.

  • Designed for medium and wide body
  • Coverage over major flight routes, except extreme polar regions
  • Higher bandwidth can be achieved by bonding up to four 64kbps channels together – yielding up to 256kbps or higher with data compression
  • Delivered within the Inmarsat-3 regional beams, standalone or simultaneous operation is available with Inmarsat Aero H and H+ through the same high-gain antenna
  • May add acceleration to this service with the Satcom Direct Router (SDR®) - See AeroX

Classic Services

With the availability of Aero H+ and Aero I on both Inmarsat-3 (I-3) and Inmarsat-4 (I-4) satellites, SwiftBroadband users are able to concurrently use SwiftBroadband and safety services.

  • Designed for medium and wide body aircraft
  • Coverage over major flight routes, except extreme polar regions
  • Supports voice services and datalink

Aero H

Aero H provides packet data rates of up to 10.5kbps for ACARS, FANS and ATN communications and up to 9.6kbps per channel for multi-channel voice, fax and data communications, through a highgain antenna – anywhere in the global beams of the I-3 satellites. Applications include passenger, operational, administrative and safety communications.

Aero H+

Aero H+ offers all the features of Aero H, but uses the I-3 regional spot beams and 4.8kbps voice codecs to deliver voice services at lower cost. Outside the regional spot beams, Aero H+ terminals operate in the global beams in the same way as standard Aero H systems. Aero H+ is also available in the full I-4 satellite footprint.

Aero I

Aero I uses intermediate-gain antennas and supports I-3 global beam packet data and I-3 regional beam, multi-channel voice and 4.8kbps circuit-mode data services. Aero I packet data is also available in the full I-4 footprint.
