Radyne’s Phoenix division focuses on satellite and terrestrial modems that address the challenges facing both military and commercial sectors today. Radyne has recently accumulated an impressive string of wins on major military contracts, which include its role on the Air Force’s Ground MultiBand Terminal (GMT) program.

With the release of this modem Radyne set the standard for a high speed, high performance and flexible COTS modem. This modem builds on the success of the DMD15L to support various vital government and military communications links worldwide meeting MIL-STD requirements and also is configurable for operation in IDR, IBS and DVB environments, another industry first.
In addition to Radyne’s strength in the military marketplace, it has been the leader in supplying product for key commercial applications.
