Dan Alldis, Inmarsat Global Government’s future technology manager said: “Our aim is simply to revolutionise how we present Inmarsat’s connectivity, by engaging emotively with our customers using the sorts of technologies you would find in Hollywood.

“We have partnered with major technology companies to create never before seen capabilities, providing a ‘wow-factor’, interactive space where Inmarsat and its partners can discover what customers need, and show them how Inmarsat connectivity solves their problems.”

Inmarsat is engaging further with its partner network in the next few months to create bespoke scenarios and content, showcasing the products and applications which provide a step change in unified terrestrial and satellite connectivity.

Using the latest and most advanced technologies allows us to take a customer to places we wouldn’t usually be able to, be that in geostationary orbit or visualising the antenna and hardware fit out in place on their airframes”
