Elbit Systems
: 10 September, 2013  (New Product)
A small footprint, lightweight military satellite communications antenna has been released by Elbit Systems with passive waveguide array planar technology
Low profile satellite communications antenna

Elbit Systems has launched the ELSAT 2000E, a new member of the MSR-2000 terminal family featuring vehicular, airborne and maritime Satellite-On-The-Move (SOTM) antennas. Based on its field proven passive waveguide array planar panel antenna technology, the ELSAT 2000E supersedes and significantly improves the performance of the previous generation ELSAT 2000, which was based on the less efficient printed circuit multi-element panel technology.
 
The ELSAT 2000E is a 50cm diameter and 15Kg low profile small footprint lightweight rugged bi-directional Military Satellite Communications (MILSATCOM)  Satellite-On-The-Move (SOTM)  antenna with outstanding deployment versatility, efficiency and performance for its size and weight.

Based on the same new generation planar antenna technology as the ELSAT 2100, 80cm diameter SOTM antenna, ELSAT 2000E delivers over double the performance and efficiency of its predecessor the ELSAT 2000 in same form factor with better RF capabilities, enabling 30Mbps downlink and 5Mbps uplink speeds.

The system features an advanced triple tracking mechanism with a 90 degree elevation capability for superior SOTM tracking and relocking.  The ELSAT 2000E features a G/T of 7 dB/k (including Radom loss) and ideal radiation pattern, perfect for demanding high performance SOTM applications where there are mounting space and/or weight limitations.
 
Both 50cm/15Kg ELSAT 2000E and the larger 80cm/38Kg ELSAT 2100 deliver outstanding SOTM performance as well as superior efficiency, enabling customers the flexibility to select the right SOTM solution for their application and deployment requirements.  Both ELSAT 2000E and ELSAT 2100 are ideal for demanding high performance Defense, Security and Tactical Military SOTM applications, designed for Ku and extended Ku band operation.

As the ELSAT 2100, ELSAT 2000E is fully integrated with Elbit’s InterSKY® 4M, enabling breakthrough performance and efficiency enhancements. The integration within Elbit's C4I military systems ensures seamless broadband connectivity in LOS, BLOS and OTH combat arenas, positioning InterSKY® 4M as a leading Tactical Military SatCom Platform.
