ViaSat Authorizes C-COM 1.2m Ka-Band Antenna
[Via Satellite 07-30-2015] C-COM Satellite Systems’ iNetVu 1.2m Ka-band vehicle mount antenna system has received type approval from ViaSat for use on the network that powers its Exede Enterprise service. The new antenna operates in Ka band but is field switchable to also operate in Ku band. The product is designed for use by broadcasters, Satellite Newsgathering (SNG), oil and gas exploration, and first responders, as well as for government and military markets.
“The Ka-1202V system is the second iNetVu vehicle mount auto-deploy antenna system to have successfully passed all mechanical and Radio Frequency (RF) testing as required by the ViaSat auto-acquire terminal qualification process,” said Bilal Awada, CTO of C-COM Satellite Systems. “We are pleased to be able to provide U.S. market customers with an affordable alternative solution for when they require a larger than existing 75cm Ka-band antenna.”
C-COM anticipates full production rollout with immediate availability next month.
