Inmarsat has ordered three new Global Xpress satellites from Airbus. The contract, announced early Thursday, covers the production of satellites GX 7, 8 and 9 for launch starting in the first half of 2023. The satellites are based on an Airbus concept called OneSat that incorporates all-electric propulsion, modular designs and software-defined payloads. Inmarsat plans to use the satellites in different locations in geostationary orbit, moving them around as needed to adjust to changing demand. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
