Inmarsat: GX5 launch

GX5 launch

GX5 successfully launched from the Guiana Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana at 21:24 GMT on 26 November 2019.

Inmarsat's fifth Global Xpress satellite, GX5, was launched by Arianespace from the Guiana Space Centre, Europe's spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana.

The Very High Throughput Satellite (V-HTS) was carried into orbit by an Ariane 5 heavy-lift launcher and is now being raised into geostationary orbit 35,786km (22,236 miles) above Earth.

GX5 will significantly boost Inmarsat's Global Xpress network capacity, meeting the growing demand for reliable mobile broadband connectivity across Europe and the Middle East.

Based on Thales Alenia Space's upgraded Spacebus 4000 B2 platform, GX5 will deliver more capacity than the entire existing GX fleet (GX1-GX4) combined.

Global Xpress (GX) is the world's first and only globally available mobile broadband network.

GX has been serving organizations and governments worldwide since 2015, and today it is the gold standard for mobile satellite communications.

Operating in the Ka-band, Global Xpress also integrates seamlessly with our L-band network to deliver powerful and reliable connectivity anytime, anywhere.

GX Transformation

GX5 marks the first step in a journey that will see the capabilities, capacity and agility of Global Xpress totally transformed – both for new and existing customers – with a further seven launches scheduled over the next four years.

Advanced Ka-band payloads will be hosted on our next generation Inmarsat-6 (I-6) L-band satellites, GX6A & 6B, for the coming 5G era.

GX7, 8 & 9 will transform the way we design, deliver and operate our infrastructure, from satellites and ground stations, to terminals and network management.

Two satellite payloads, GX10A & 10B, will be placed into Highly Elliptical Orbits (HEO), ensuring continuous coverage above 65° North and enhanced Arctic capabilities.
