With Global Xpress coverage across Europe and Russia, and

Announced at the Satellite 2014 conference in March, Cobham
SATCOM's new EXPLORER Global Xpress terminals join a diverse range
of field-proven BGAN and Ku-/ Ka-band VSAT terminals.
The new EXPLORER 3075GX features a manual point pedestal whilst
the EXPLORER 5075GX is an Auto-Deploy Fly-Away VSAT solution. Both
are all new, highly robust designs, developed 100% in-house. They
utilise a new 75cm 4-segment reflector and are the only Global
Xpress terminals available that include integrated Wi-Fi.
The third new Global Xpress terminal from Cobham SATCOM, the
Drive-Away EXPLORER 7100GX, is for vehicular use. Featuring a 100cm
reflector, it is based on the established and field-proven EXPLORER
7100 VSAT terminal. A Global Xpress field upgrade kit for users of
the standard EXPLORER 7100 will be made available.
