GX-9: Inmarsat FB250 Class UT
Utilizing what is widely recognized as the best stabilized Marine antenna in the industry, we are offering Glocom’s GX-9. This terminal is an Inmarsat Fleetbroadband FB-250 class user terminal designed to support a variety of services including IP packet data (up to 384 kbps in shared channel), Streaming (8,16, 32, 64, and 128 kbps), 3.1KHz audio for fax and secured voice, and low-rate AMBE telephony circuit-switched voice services. GX-9 operates under the Inmarsat 4th generation satellites on global coverage. The above-deck unit (ADE) features a helical antenna, a 3-axis stabilizer with automatic satellite tracking, a GPS receiver, and a front end RFU. The below-deck unit (BDE) contains an enhanced FB250 core module with crystal oscillator durable for the marine shock/vibration environment, a wide-range (10 to 32 vdc) DC/DC Power Module and an Interface Module housed in a ruggedized chassis shock mount for desk top or rack installation. GX-9 is lightweight, compact, and low cost – ideal for commercial fishing, coast guard patrol, cargo transport, and government use.
GX-9 is certified with IEC 60945 for maritime safety, FCC Parts 15C/25 and EC certification for emission control.

Typical Vessel Fitting
With ADE weighing less than 3.7 kg and dome size smaller than a 2-gallon slow cooker, the GX-9 can be fitted to any size vessel. The GX-9 BDE is measured about 25 x 28 x 5 cm (not counting the WiFi antenna) and it needs just a very small space to fit inside the cabin. The GX-9 is an FB-250 class design with transceiver that is capable of most FBB services except the 256kbps streaming and fax below 15° elevation angle.
