Boeing to Build 4th Inmarsat-5 Global Xpress Satellite

  • 1st spacecraft in the series scheduled to launch this year

Boeing [NYSE: BA] will further strengthen Inmarsat’s Global Xpress satellite network under an exercised option to build a fourth Inmarsat-5 spacecraft. Global Xpress will provide Inmarsat’s government and commercial customers with mobile broadband connectivity on land, at sea and in the air. 

“Receiving this option to our initial three-satellite agreement with Inmarsat positions Boeing as the key manufacturer of this vital communications network,” said Craig Cooning, vice president and general manager of Boeing Space & Intelligence Systems. “We appreciate this vote of confidence and will continue to live up to it as we look forward to the first satellite’s launch later this year.”
