GX46 - Orbit Communication Systems


Multi-Role Airborne Terminal for Inmarsat Global Xpress and WGS

Orbit’s innovative MPT WGX family of modular, highly reliable multi-role aviation terminals are fully interoperable between the Wideband Global Satcom (WGS) system and Inmarsat’s Global Xpress (GX) constellation.

MPT WGX operates across commercial and military Ka-bands through a 30 cm (12”) or 46 cm (18”) antenna, fully integrated with modems, electronics and software. The lightweight, small-footprint terminals couple high performance and Orbit’s industry-leading reliability, enabling a wide range of communication opportunities for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), military mission aircraft, rotary-wing platforms and business jets.
