ATLANTA, July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DataPath, Inc., a leading provider of remote field communications and information technology solutions to the aerospace, government, broadcast, and infrastructure markets, announced today its new QCT90 man-packable antenna has achieved full Inmarsat Type Approval for use on commercial Ka-band frequencies over Global Xpress (GX), Inmarsat's global high-throughput wideband service. This further expands DataPath's ability to support customers as a service provider of Inmarsat GX solutions.
As an approved Inmarsat Government GX satellite service provider in both commercial and military Ka-band frequencies, DataPath can offer customers complete solutions pairing high-throughput connectivity, either on-demand or at a fixed monthly subscription price, with its field proven line of Portable Satellite Terminals. DataPath has previously achieved Inmarsat full Type Approval for use on GX's military Ka-band frequencies for the company's CCT120 and CCT200 fly-away terminals, DA120 drive-away terminal and STT 208 trailer-based antenna systems.
Introduced to the market last fall, the QCT90 man-pack terminal was designed for both simplicity and ruggedness in order to deliver quick, reliable connectivity in remote locations. The 90-cm antenna's carbon fiber reflector and cast magnesium frame allow for maximum durability while maintaining light weight. The system's fully integrated design avoids loose cables and includes a GPS-enabled graphical user interface (GUI) to allow an operator to take the antenna from case to connection within three minutes. For ultra-portability, the QCT90 fits into a single back-pack style case.
"To ensure the success of their missions, our customers must count on their communications partners to deliver reliable, comprehensive solutions," said David Myers, President & CEO of DataPath. "We are excited to work with Inmarsat to provide easy-to-use and cost effective end-to-end communications solutions that combine not only terminals and high-throughput Inmarsat connectivity, but also our MaxView® Enterprise™ network management software, advanced network mobility products, 24 x 7 cyber security services, and professional and field support services."
Inmarsat Global Xpress is an unprecedented plug-and-play, high-throughput satellite connectivity service that supports high definition voice, video and data applications through a single operator. Its secure beam-to-beam handover capabilities and worldwide coverage make it ideal for global airborne, naval and land operations.
