Montreal, CANADA – August 29, 2017 – Advantech Wireless, a global leader for Satellite broadband communications solutions, announced today that its 2.4m EngageTM Class High Performance VSAT Flyaway Terminal has been certified by a NATO customer and received XTAR Certification.
The New EngageTM Class 2.4m Flyaway VSAT Terminal Solution includes the most advanced SATCOM technology available today. This flexible and transportable VSAT solution from Advantech Wireless is a fully integrated tri-band system designed for easy deployment and use.
The terminal is based on a high efficiency, ruggedized tri-band ready 2.4 Meter Flyaway Antenna, which can cover X-Band, Ku-Band or Ka-Band, by replacing the feed only. The antenna is optionally fully motorized with an integrated satellite finding controller.
The terminal has built-in two independent unique triple access mode satellite modems based on the new ASAT IITMsystem or SCPC mode modems AMT-83L, Mil 165A Grade and DSSS Spread Spectrum Technology. The ASAT IITM system technology allows the same modem to operate 3 different access wave forms, and achieve the most efficient bandwidth utilization possible.
The RF section includes the award winning Second Generation GaN based technology SSPA/SSPBs: X-Band from 20W to 100W, Ku-Band from 16W to 125W and Ka-Band from 10W to 40W. The entire terminal is fully compliant with MIL-STD-188-164a, MIL-STD-810F, NATO STANAG 4484, IP65, and XTAR.
“These advanced VSAT terminals include state of the art satellite technology. The system can uplink two separate carriers and hence establish a solid connection backbone between a field command center and distributed resources. By selecting the best Advantech knowhow and technology, we managed to offer almost ten times the data rate originally planned by the customer. XTAR satellites proved to be an outstanding partner and an ideal technical choice,” mentioned Cristi Damian, VP Business Development at Advantech Wireless.
