Intelsat General Introduces FlexGround: The Optimal Solution for Mobility Without Sacrificing Speed
High Data Rates, Compact Terminals and Anti-Jamming Capabilities Ensure Mission Success—Even in the Most Austere Environments
Flexible, Pay-As-You-Go Service Plans Combined with Global Availability Enable Troops to Rapidly and Cost-Efficiently Access Connectivity Around the World
“Our new FlexGround service ensures that tactical users in remote environments around the world can stay connected,” said
FlexGround supports a range of lightweight tactical and early entry user terminals, including Communications-On-The-Pause (COTP), Manpack and Emergency Responder communications. It enables data, voice and video communications including the ability to meet the High Definition Full-Motion Video (HD FMV) needs of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) applications.
Specifically, FlexGround delivers:
- A High-Performing, Resilient and Easily Accessible Network. Leveraging Intelsat’s multi-layered, Ku-band network and Intelsat EpicNG high-throughput satellite platform, FlexGround delivers unprecedented data rate transmissions enabling converged data, voice and video communications to the smallest, land mobile terminals. The combination of very high data rates, between 3x and 10x the speed of existing satellite networks, and the very small terminals provide ground forces with the optimal solution for mobility without sacrificing speed.
- Unprecedented Flexibility, Efficiency and Affordability. FlexGround also enables government customers to select among several service options, allowing them to choose a plan that is based on their data-rate usage, geographic and budgetary needs, without having to make an upfront commitment. FlexGround offers a flexible pay-as you go option that provides a budget friendly cost structure. The flexible service options provide for a full-time lease for long duration missions, or usage based on-demand service for limited-duration needs such as emergency response.
- Advanced Interference Mitigation Capabilities. Intelsat EpicNG satellites have smaller spot beams and an advanced digital payload which helps to quickly identify and mitigate attempts to disrupt signals in the field. Anti-jamming capabilities, combined with multiple layers of resiliency provided by Intelsat’s global network, ensure always-on connectivity, secure communications, and most importantly, a layer of security for the people who depend on them.
