STS Global Brings Satcube’s Satellite Terminal to the US
STS Global announced a new partnership with the Swedish satellite company Satcube. Under this agreement, STS Global will promote and distribute the company’s Satcube Ku satellite terminal product in the United States. This partnership comes after successful testing of the terminal in November 2017, during which the lightweight terminal delivered a throughput of 10 Mbps downstream and 10 Mbps upstream via the Intelsat Epic 29e satellite.
According to Satcube, the terminal is optimized for use with High Throughput Satellites (HTS). With a compact form factor, the terminal fits into approved cabin baggage and weighs only 8 kg (15.4 lbs).
Unveiled for the first time last September, the terminal is Satcube’s first commercial product. It boasts a three-hour transmit time, optional hot-swappable batteries, an iDirect or UHP Networks modem, Wi-Fi, a flat antenna, an amplifier (high efficiency GaN SSPA), positioning system, upconverter, downconverter, and a heat pipe cooling system.
