Top 10 Space Tech Solution Companies - 2020"Just like COMSAT, Orbit product development is driven by the desire to create the best next generation technology and deliver consistent customer satisfaction supported by a highly specialized technical team. We are excited to add this impressive range of products to our portfolio. It perfectly complements our existing range of services, enhances our current offering and extends our reach even further around the globe. Our mission is to provide reliable connectivity that enables essential missions and we know the Orbit terminals will uphold our ability to achieve this for our customers," says David Greenhill, CEO of COMSAT.

The MPT WGX models provide added value to COMSAT's connectivity offering as the reliable, modular, multi-role aviation terminals are designed to be fully interoperable with the US Government's military Wideband Global Satcom (WGS) network and are optimized for use over Inmarsat's Global Xpress (GX) Ka-band constellation. The lightweight, small-footprint terminals, available in 30 cm and 46 cm, couples high transmit and receive performance and reliability, enabling a wide range of communication opportunities for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), military mission aircraft, rotary-wing platforms and business jets.

"We are excited to be part of COMSAT's satellite solutions offerings to the global government aviation and maritime markets. We have designed our solutions to allow for increasingly bi-directional high-speed communications where very high forward and return link speeds are required simultaneously. Coupled with COMSAT's comprehensive solution approach, we believe customers will benefit from our technological innovations and the competitive total cost of ownership of our joint offerings," says Dany Eschar CEO of Orbit. The addition of Orbit's OceanTRx hardware to the COMSAT range delivers further flexibility in creating customized connectivity solutions tailored to individual vessel needs.
