SATCOM on?the?Move Terminal

SWE-DISH Satellite Systems AB : 12 March, 2009  (New Product)
SWE-DISH Satellite Systems AB, a DataPath® company specializing in compact, quick-to-air and easy-to-use mobile satellite communications (SATCOM) equipment, announces a new SATCOM on-the-move terminal that is a result of a successful integration of SWE-DISH’s leading satellite terminal technology and Saab’s leading stabilized platform technology.
SATCOM on?the?Move Terminal
The SATCOM on-the-move terminal is designed for both land and marine applications with close to worldwide coverage and access to almost any commercial Ku band satellite in service today for up to 10 Mbps broadband communications.

The SATCOM on-the-move terminal from SWE-DISH and Saab is designed to provide an easy-to-use, unsurpassed broadband on-the-move SATCOM capability with very high performance and accuracy. It is truly interoperable with legacy systems due to fully meeting Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and worldwide satellite operator requirements in legacy transmission modes, such as Single Channel Per Carrier (SCPC) and Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA), without the need to employ excess bandwidth and spread spectrum modulation to overcome terminal deficiencies. For the foreseeable future, operation within the common infrastructure is essential for networking with thousands of existing legacy terminals deployed worldwide.

The unique Saab navigation and steering system is autonomous from the satellite link and maintains pointing during blocking so reacquisition is instantaneous when line of sight is reestablished. The four-axis mount ensures accurate pointing on land or sea from the poles to the equator. Due to use of high-strength, lightweight components such as carbon fiber, the platform has a low weight and can easily be mounted on any vehicle or vessel. The terminal balances cost, performance and profile to be an effective solution for all platforms requiring streaming video, video conferencing, net meeting, file transfer protocol, and battlefield management — all while on the move.

In May 2006 the pre-series first demonstration unit was presented. Now, less than three years later, the platform is ready for delivery. Both SWE-DISH and Saab have developed and tested the terminal in a wide range of circumstances and tough situations. The SATCOM on-the-move terminal is well suited for highly maneuverable, high-speed platforms such as off-road vehicles, smaller inshore boats, and medium-size littoral ships.

Lars Jehrlander, CEO of SWE-DISH Satellite Systems, said, “Since 2006 we have worked to make this among the best on-the-move terminals available. The keys to the system’s success are SWE-DISH’s high-performance antenna and Saab’s revolutionary stabilizer that keep the satellite link fixed and accurate no matter the terrain or the maneuver. Now it’s time to raise the bar on our competitors and give end users advanced broadband on-the-move.”

The SATCOM on-the-move terminal is being shown on a demonstration tour, which started in Europe in January and is currently continuing in North America.
