  3. 3. Inmarsat Global A truly global company • Headquarters in City Road, London plus offices in 40 countries worldwide • Global network of terrestrial gateways plus fibre network • World’s leading global mobile satellite broadband provider • Worldwide network of independent Distribution Partners (DPs), Service Providers (SPs) and Valued Added Resellers (VARs). • 24/7/365 customer support facilities
  4. 4. Inmarsat Powering global connectivity for more than three decades • 1979: Set up by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to enable ships to stay in constant touch with shore or to call for help in an emergency, no matter how far out at sea • 1999: first intergovernmental organisation to transform into a private company • 2005: present in the London Stock Exchange Today’s Inmarsat customers are found in many different sectors – but they are typically businesses and organisations that need to communicate where terrestrial telecom networks are unreliable or simply cannot reach.
  5. 5. Our business Our products and customers can be classified under four main sectors… GovernmentsEnterprise (Land) AviationMaritime Energy Government Leisure Passengers Merchant Shipping Fishing Energy/ Oil & Gas Construction Aid Agencies Transport/Logistics Media First Responder Commercial airlines Operators of long-range corporate business jets Government air transport organisations Serves the governments of over 100 nations Emergency services Border security Embassies, NGOs Healthcare, Education

  11. 11. ˃ GADSS (Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System)- ICAO’s concept for GADSS addresses the following three areas of technological requirements: 1) Global Flight Tracking 2) Autonomous Distress Tracking 3) Flight Data Recovery. ˃ Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband-Safety (SB-S) system: is designed to securely and affordably support all GADSS requirements. It is available for initial retrofit installation on existing aircraft today and is scheduled to become a standard option on new aircraft deliveries from 2018. ˃ Provides 10x more capacity – enabling to significantly augment flight tracking and surveillance capabilities over the oceanic airspace SwiftBroadband - Safety The future

World supply of satellite capacity Source: Euroconsult 2016 Despite significant amount of capacity being launched, shortage in mobility market is expected
  14. 14. ESIMs operate in Ka-band GSO Fixed-Satellite Service (FSS) networks User Terminals with small directional antennas for the provision of broadband communication services. May be mounted on aircraft, ships, land vehicles & platforms… ESIMs (Earth Stations in Motion) in Ka-band People want to use these.. anytime, anywhere! ESIMs expand the traditional FSS and MSS type applications providing truly broadband services to mobile platforms
