Globecomm Releases X-Band Terminal
Globecomm Systems introduced a 1.2-meter X-band auto-acquisition satellite terminal as part of its Auto-Explorer system, the company announced.
The system provides government and military customers with a compact, self-contained X-band terminal that can be set up by a single person in less than 15 minutes, Globecomm said. An auto-acquisition system locates the appropriate satellite, peaks up and brings itself live into the satellite network without operator intervention.
The terminal is capable of off-grid operation for up to an hour with the optional environmentally-sealed battery module. The system’s polarization sense is user-selectable for Xtar operation and is compatible to both Xtar and the U.S. Defense Satellite Communications System.
