      Cutting-Edge Satellite Technology for Military, Enterprise, Broadcast, Emergency Response and Commercial Unveiled at SATELLITE 2007

      Dozens of New Products Enabled by Satellite Communications Showcased

      Thursday, February 15th 2007 — More than 280 leading satellite marketplace manufacturers, integrators, and suppliers will unveil new products and innovative technology solutions at SATELLITE 2007, the largest conference and exhibition for satellite-enabled communications.

      Visitors to the SATELLITE 2007 Exhibition will have the opportunity to review and compare more than 50,000 square feet of new products and services from satellite marketplace leaders including Boeing, DataPath, General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies, Intelsat, Lockheed Martin Commercial Space Systems, and Orbital Sciences Corporation.

      New Product Highlights on the SATELLITE 2007 Show Floor Include:

      • SwiftBroadband Services by Chelton SATCOM bring broadband connectivity to the skies, allowing business jets, military/government operators and other air transport vehicles to access a Satellite Data Unit, the SDU-7320, and a High-Power Amplifier, the HPA-7400.  The SDU-7320 contains an integral router function which is ideal for aircraft not requiring the complexity or cost of a full network server. 
      • Train passengers can access broadband interactive services such as internet access, e-mail, and multimedia data via a new satellite communications technology solution designed by INDRA Espacio. 
      • Andrew Corporation has introduced a 1.2 meter auto acquisition earth station antenna system ideal for situations where transportable communications connectivity is needed, such as oil exploration and other remote work sites, emergency first-responder communications support, and military logistics and support.
      • Iridium NEXT, Iridium Satellite’s next-generation constellation, will provide increased bandwidth to power new devices and enable new services for commercial and government users.  NEXT will support space-based assets in the future, featuring an IP-based structure to better leverage and add capabilities.
      • Satellite uplink manufacturer Advent Communications has launched its first dual-purpose ‘FlyDrive’ antenna, a compact, fully motorized satellite terminal designed for rapid deployment.
      • Quintech Electronics TXS/RXS 2150 8:1 Fiber Link Redundancy System provides the routing mechanism for substituting a backup fiber link for any one of eight main fiber links.  This system provides highly reliable fiber redundancy for 1/8th the cost of installing a redundant fiber link for each primary link.
      • Satellite operator HISPASAT starts the commercialization of advanced broadband services via the Amerhis onboard processing system, housed on the Amazon satellite. This system brings a revolution to the field of multimedia satellite communications, as Amerhis is an advanced multimedia useful load on a commercial communications satellite.
      • SystemWare Europe is announcing two additions to its range of UHF satcom products:  AETHERA, a fully integrated fiber optic solution which enables the remote operation of UHF TACSAT and V/UHF line-of-site radio links; and MERCURA, a fully motorized, tripod-mounted helical antenna which can be hand-carried and deployed at your in-theater HQ.
      • Apposite™ Technologies, Inc. has released version 2.0 of the Linktropy™ 4500, the company’s high-precision, easy-to-use, WAN emulation appliance. The version 2.0 firmware adds the Linktropy Scheduler for testing the effects of dynamically changing WAN conditions on network-based applications.
      • Third-generation Eclipse Digital Satellite Routers, produced by AAE Systems, Inc. Feature enhancements found in the new products include the latest in Turbo Product Code, TCP enhancement protocols, advanced routing, security capabilities, switchless, seamless redundancy, and an automatic adaptive rain fade and power control feature.

      “The SATELLITE 2007 Exhibition show floor provides an unparalleled opportunity for those with an interest in satellite-enabled communications to explore the cutting edge technologies affecting this ever-changing marketplace,” said Joe Rosone, Access Intelligence Satellite Group vice president and publisher.

      “The more than twenty new products released during the 2007 exhibition are designed with the end-user in mind. Whether that end-user is a war fighter, a broadcaster or a business traveler — the SATELLITE exhibition will showcase products to meet the needs of ever market satellites serve,” Rosone continued.
