UltiSat Enhances Airborne Communications Portfolio with Addition of Intelsat's FlexAir Service
GAITHERSBURG, Md., June 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UltiSat, a global provider of critical communications and networking solutions, announced that it has added the Intelsat FlexAir service to its Airborne Solutions portfolio. Intelsat FlexAir is a satellite-based communications service designed specifically for government and military aircraft applications. UltiSat has signed a FlexAir solution provider agreement with Intelsat and expects to begin customer implementations later this year.
Reliable communications to support real-time situational awareness and command and control requirements are vital to tactical operations, especially for airborne platforms. UltiSat’s Airborne Solutions group provides technology products, engineering, integration and operational support services that enable Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions. The addition of Intelsat FlexAir expands UltiSat’s portfolio to include pre-packaged secure two-way real-time communications for voice, video, and imagery data. The service is optimized for in-flight communications and can be used for either manned or un-manned aircraft. The service is further bolstered by access to the IntelsatOne global terrestrial network and state-of-the-art network monitoring through Intelsat's Secure Operations Center (ISOC).
As one of a select few authorized solution providers for FlexAir, UltiSat will have access to Intelsat’s global satellite fleet to deliver the coverage and resiliency needed for critical missions. UltiSat will be integrating the Intelsat FlexAir service with a variety of specially certified aeronautical antennas, as well as providing ongoing custmer service and mission support.
“The addition of FlexAir to our portfolio emphasizes our dedication to leading the Aero ISR comms industry with quick-response capabilities to provide a force multiplier that enhances the probability of mission success under any conditions,” said Garr Stephenson, Vice President & General Manager, UltiSat Airborne Solutions. “By combining FlexAir, with our expertise in airframe integration, and field operations and maintenance, UltiSat can provide complete end-to-end solutions for a wide range of aeronautical missions.”
"Intelsat General and Ultisat are mutually driven to support national security and have teamed to deliver critical ISR to strategic military decision-makers operating in hot spots around the globe," said Rick Henry, Vice President, Intelsat General Communications. "IGC's FlexAir managed connectivity and Ultisat's end-to-end airborne analytics grant tactical advantage to pilots, field operatives and leaders of command and control."
