Globally Agile, Reliable, High-Data-Rate Communications for Ground Users

Intelsat FlexGround is a complete, end-to-end managed service solution specifically engineered to meet the comms-on-the-pause (COTP) and comms-on-the-move (COTM) connectivity needs of land-mobile operations. Now, defense and emergency management teams are equipped with the speed and reliability they need for mission success when and where it’s needed most.

Communications-On-the-Move (COTM), Communications-On-The-Pause (COTP), and Manpack communications are essential for situational awareness, multi-domain theater access, operational theater back-haul, and Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, ISR (C5ISR). These technologies help expeditionary forces and humanitarian aid providers with immediate access to reliable communications linking advance teams to information and services essential for their mission.

Fixed VSAT

These 1.2m antennas are designed for long-term deployment, with coverage provided by latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates. Even though the satellite is fixed, portability is allowed.

Services options for these antennas include unlimited or monthly fixed GB packages for extended missions, or usage-based on-demand services that can be used for emergency responses that have limited duration.

  • Terminal operating in a fixed location
  • Coverage provided based on Lat and Long
  • Portability allowed

Communications-on-the-Pause (COTP) / Manpack

FlexGround is a communications game changer for mobility applications requiring compact, easy-to-use terminals to rapidly respond to contingencies worldwide, from Humanitarian Assistance Disaster Relief (HADR) to Combat Operations.

These grab-and-go terminals for both Manpacks and COTP easily fit in an overhead flight compartment or checked as baggage. Applications and systems are easy to operate and maintain, even by non-technical operators, providing wider use across the spectrum of user operations.

  • Stationary terminal that may deploy anywhere in coverage
  • Subscription available globally or regionally
  • Easily portable

Communications-on-the-Move (COTM)

Today’s defense and emergency management agencies need to deploy quickly and stay connected in places where terrestrial communications—and even the power grid itself— may be unavailable.

The industry-leading Comms-on-the-Move (COTM) offerings provide secure, agile, high-performing ground communications. And a pay-as-you-go cost structure ensures you only pay for the bandwidth you use.

  • Vehicle mounted terminal serviced on the move
  • Subscription available regionally
