Paradigm Communications Systems has announced that the rugged, quick deploy HORNET100GX is available for operation on the Inmarsat Global Xpress satellite network as a highly efficient Land Terminal Efficiency Group 2 terminal. Inmarsat, the world leader in global, mobile satellite communications, has issued Type Approval of the HORNET100GX for use on all GX Land based services, such as G2X Land, providing cost effective high throughput data services around the world.
The HORNET100GX is based on Paradigm’s rugged and portable PIM-based HORNET VSAT terminal. The field-proven HORNET provides a single satcom solution for many different operational requirements, being environmentally rugged, yet lightweight; even the largest 100cm variant can be packed into a single airline-friendly case, as well as saving airtime service charges compared to other terminals.
At the heart of each of Paradigm’s satellite terminals is the PIM (Paradigm Interface Module), providing an easy to use operational interface ensuring rapid setup and simple terminal configuration and management. Paradigm’s PIM is at the heart of modern satellite terminal operation, designed to simplify operation, reduce operating/training costs and provide a central unit for the integration and operation of satellite terminal hardware. It is the reason Paradigm terminals are ideally suited for Inmarsat’s Global Xpress network. As well as making pointing simple for any user, PIM-based terminals all have excellent SWaP characteristics and operational agility providing key connectivity for edge devices.
Paradigm terminals are all IATA compliant, and the modular, quick deploy single-case HORNET provides the ideal balance of portability with high bandwidth.
