Advantech VSAT System Certified by NATO Customer
Advantech Wireless announced that a customer from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has certified the company’s 1.2m Engage Class VSAT FlyAway Terminal, a fully integrated tri-band system designed for easy deployment and use.
The terminal is based on a ruggedized tri-band 1.2 Meter Flyaway Antenna, which can cover X-Band, Ku-Band, or Ka-Band, by replacing the feed only. The antenna is fully motorized with an integrated satellite finding controller.
The terminal has built-in either unique triple access mode satellite modems based on the new ASAT 2 system, or Single Channel Per Carrier (SCPC) mode modem AMT-83L, Mil 165A Grade and Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) technology. The ASAT 2 system technology allows the same modem to operate three different access waveforms.
“The system can uplink two separate carriers and hence establish a solid backbone connection between a field command center and distributed resources. The system is completely integrated with power supply system, GPS, routers, and test equipment,” said Cristi Damian, vice president of business development at Advantech Wireless. “We managed to offer almost 10 times more data rates than originally planned by the customer.”
