Advantech Wireless Awarded Via Satellite Excellence Award for Vertical Impact in the Military Sector

Montreal, CANADA – March 10, 2016 – Advantech Wireless, a global leader in satellite broadband communications solutions, has received the Via Satellite Excellence Award for Vertical Impact – Military. This award recognizes the company for innovation in support of the military sector.

The award was presented this morning during the Satellite 2016 conference, held at National Harbor, Md.

One of Advantech Wireless’ signature accomplishments this year was the introduction of second generation Gallium Nitride (GaN) products for tactical markets. These are high performance Block Up Converters and High Power Amplifiers that have overall size, weight and power reductions on the order of 50 per cent of previous versions. For example, applying these amplifiers in troposcatter communications enables a new class of man-portable terminals, enabling new communications applications for tactical operations to reduce size and weight, while increasing effectiveness of military wireless networks.

Advantech Wireless CEO David Gelerman said, “We began our GaN technology initiative because we knew that ever-increasing bandwidth demands would require better performance. We are grateful to win the recognition of this award and we continue to invest in research and development to produce higher power and more efficient products. We are committed to exceeding the performance standards our customers have come to expect from us.”

Via Satellite’s 2015 Excellence Awards salute the companies, technologies, campaigns and innovative people who’ve helped shape the success of the global satellite industry.  Recipients are the most outstanding people and technologies in satellite and set a benchmark for what can be accomplished in this market.
