Inmarsat is a company that provides global satellite communications

Inmarsat looks to provide high-speed data services around the world in the land, sea, or air through their global satellites. The company was founded in 1979, in London, England, United Kingdom.


The company looks to provide its telecommunications and data services to governments, commercial enterprises, and humanitarian organizations. Their data services include voice and high-speed data communications. They utilize compact terminals, antennas, phones, and mobile services that are accessed from vessels, aircraft, vehicles, and remote locations. The company owns and operates thirteen satellites to hold their global coverage from geostationary orbit.


Inmarsat offers broadband services that can provide simultaneous voice and data for office applications. In outdoor and safety applications the company acts as a Global Maritime Distress and Safety System and comply with the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization for global safety comms. In order to comply with these requirements, Inmarsat provides two-way data connectivity for messaging, tracking, and monitoring of fixed and mobile assets.


Inmarsat offers Internet of things (IoT) services for industry, offering connection services and monitoring services through the mobile satellite connectivity offered by Inmarsat. The company has included BGAN services, LoRaWAN capabilities, and 1-6 duel L-band/Ka-band constellation to offer extended capabilities. The industries the company markets its IoT services towards include agriculture, aid and NGO, energy, exploration, leisure, media, mining, transport, and utilities. Examples of the company's enterprise solutions in IoT include irrigation and water management monitoring, and aquaculture monitoring.


Inmarsat works to provide communication services, including communication certainty, provided by satellite networks that can reach areas across air, land, and sea that terrestrial networks may not reach or otherwise may not provide clear connections over. These services are aimed towards government communications, and Inmarsat works to offer satellite constellation-based communication with redundancy and automatic backups with inter-networked and satellite constellations. This includes the company's stated $600 million a year spent to stay ahead of the technology curve in satellite-based secure connections for mobility.
