Get SAT, SeaLandAire to Deliver BLOS-Capable Array Antenna to US Navy
The U.S. Navy has selected Get SAT‘s Ultra Blade L-Band ESA (Electronically Steerable Array Antenna) to pair with SeaLandAire‘s ADARO, an Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV). Ultra Blade will allow Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) C2 and ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) exfiltration on the ADARO.
The companies said in a Tuesday announcement that this deal the ADARO and Ultra Blade L-Band ESA, using Inmarsat Government’s high capacity L-Band service, will provide the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) with a low cost, highly mobile USV capable of supporting the most demanding at sea missions, including full motion video backhaul. The companies said this makes a significant impact to mission planning and approvals in high risk environments.
Jason Stephens, Get SAT vice president of Sales for North America commented: “The integration of Ultra Blade’s satcom with the autonomous capabilities of ADARO provides an immediate positive impact to the warfighter. Anytime technology reduces the potential risk to personnel, Get SAT will be at the forefront of creating smart, micronized communication solutions.”
