UltiSat enhances its airborne communications portfolio with the addition of Intelsat’s FlexAir service


GAITHERSBURG, Md., June 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – UltiSat, a global provider of critical communication and networking solutions, has announced that it has added the Intelsat FlexAir service to its portfolio of airborne solutions. Intelsat FlexAir is a satellite communication service designed specifically for government and military aircraft applications. UltiSat has signed a FlexAir Solutions Provider Agreement with Intelsat and plans to begin customer implementations later this year.

Reliable communications to support real-time situational awareness and command and control requirements are vital for 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 secure, pre-packaged real-time two-way communications for voice, video and imaging data. The service is optimized for in-flight communications and can be used for manned or unmanned aircraft. The service is further enhanced 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 the few approved solution providers for FlexAir, UltiSat will have access to Intelsat’s global fleet of satellites to provide the coverage and resilience needed for critical missions. UltiSat will integrate the Intelsat FlexAir service with a variety of specially certified aeronautical antennas, while providing ongoing customer service and mission support.

“The addition of FlexAir to our portfolio underscores our commitment to leading the Aero ISR communications industry with rapid response capabilities to provide a force multiplier that improves the likelihood of mission success under all conditions,” said Garr Stephenson, Vice President and General Manager, UltiSat Airborne Solutions. “By combining FlexAir, with our expertise in airframe integration, as well as field operations and maintenance, UltiSat can provide complete end-to-end solutions for a wide range of aeronautical missions. “

“Intelsat General and Ultisat are committed to supporting national security and have partnered to provide critical ISR to strategic military decision makers operating in hot spots around the world,” said Rick Henry, vice president of Intelsat General Communications. “IGC’s FlexAir-managed connectivity and Ultisat’s end-to-end airborne analytics provide a tactical advantage for pilots, field officers and command and control leaders. “
