Global Foxcom is offering a unique, Inmarsat & GNSS Fiber-based Repeater solution for Inmarsat BGAN satellite terminal coverage. The repeater enables transmission of Inmarsat and GNSS signals from outdoor to indoor. This solution, which provides Inmarsat coverage to bunkers and aircraft hangars, saves money because there is no need to take aircrafts out of the hangars each time avionics systems need to be tested.

The Inmarsat fiber repeater system includes an IP65-rated Outdoor Unit (ODU) that is AC-powered, an AC-powered Indoor Unit (IDU), antenna and cabling.

A dual-zone system is available for a hangar that requires double the coverage or separate support area. The fiber optic cable between the indoor and outdoor units enables remote and flexible placement of outdoor antennas. (Fiber optic cables are not included.)
