Paradigm's Swarm45 terminal approved for Inmarsat Global Xpress

Paradigm´s flat panel Swarm45 terminal can now add full worldwide coverage on Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) to its impressive list of features, the company said.

In use on multiple platforms and missions today, Global Xpress complements military satellite communications and delivers a highly reliable commercial Ka-band network that meets mobile, on-demand communication needs worldwide.

Inmarsat recently granted Type Approval for the Swarm45 terminal as it enhances portability and ease of use of the GX service by offering fast setup and pointing. During successful demonstrations in multiple user scenarios, US government end users were connected in under five minutes, anywhere in the world without requiring specific region configurations or set up procedures.

The lightweight Swarm45 delivers high data rates for its antenna size. It is designed around the PIM (Paradigm Interface Module) which has an integrated modem and innovative audio and visual pointing aids. The pointing process has been developed by Paradigm to ensure quick deployment by users with minimal training. It provides a straightforward method of acquiring any one of the GX satellites without the extra bulk of motors and controllers as part of the hardware.
