GATR Technologies Introduces Ultra-Portable Sub-meter Satellite Terminal for HTS
Cubic Corporation announced that its subsidiary GATR Technologies, which operates within the Cubic Mission Solutions (CMS) business division, will introduce the GATR-FLEX, an ultra-portable, foldable 0.75-meter satellite communications antenna, and the GATR 950 modem, which is based on iDirect Velocity technology. The GATR-FLEX and GATR 950 together make a highly efficient data transfer terminal designed to maximize portability of sub-meter satellite communications leveraging High Throughput Satellites (HTS). The GATR-FLEX terminal provides high transmit power while achieving low size, weight and power (SWaP) pack-out, according to the company.
“The GATR-FLEX and GATR 950 enables users to transfer large amounts of data, such as multiple high-definition video streams, at the same time as Command and Control (C2) traffic, data exfiltration and voice,” said Roark McDonald, vice president and general manager of Cubic GATR Technologies. “The high-throughput capability makes interoperability with Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) applications possible with an ultra-light, sub-meter satcom terminal.”
