The Ka-band satellite, which was launched in December, has completed satellite and end-user tests, and commercial service is beginning with US Government customers within its coverage area, which is the Indian Ocean Region.

Inmarsat says that its Global Xpress constellation is expected to start full global operations in the first half of 2015, with an array of GX products and services for the maritime industry and other markets.

Before that, US Government customers have become the first users of Global Xpress. Peter Hadinger, president of the US Government Business unit, said: “We are proud that Global Xpress has been selected to meet some of the United States Government’s most critical needs and pleased to already have them online and operational.”
