US Combat Support Agency Buys $3.3 Million in Norsat Satellite Terminals
[Via Satellite 01-09-2016] Norsat International, a provider of communication solutions for remote applications, has received a $3.3 million order for its Globetrekker 2.0 portable satellite terminals from an unnamed U.S. combat support agency, supporting the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and intelligence community.
The GlobeTrekker is a fly-away satellite terminal with auto-acquire technology and a flexible deployment platform. A one-touch interface and the LinkControl software allow for automatic satellite acquisition, so less experienced operators can use the system.
These military-grade, auto-acquire terminals will provide X-band and Ku-band dual-band connectivity, an integrated optic module to link the Outdoor Unit (ODU) to an Indoor Unit (IDU) modem, and the ability to quickly change the RF equipment.
