Get SAT, Spacecom Demonstrate Mobile ISR Capabilities
Spacecom, which operates the AMOS satellite fleet, and Get SAT report that using AMOS-17’s steerable Ka-band High Throughput Satellite (HTS) beams and Get SAT’s miniaturized Micro-SAT satcom terminals, they have tested and demonstrated full mobile broadband satcom capabilities for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) applications.
Get SAT reports its Micro-SAT terminal demonstrated a return channel of over 10Mbps, calling it breakthrough in size, weight and power for broadband communications required by various ISR sensors. The companies say they have demonstrated an ideal configuration for Communications On-The-Move applications in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Asia.
Get SAT CEO Kfir Benjamin said: “This news is incredible for a market that is starved for secure, nimble, mobile ISR. With AMOS-17’s steerable KA-band HTS beams, Get SAT’s miniaturized terminals produce extremely effective transmission and reception via a single small antenna. No longer does one have to seek miniaturized terminals for secure and reliable high data rates for tactical units using mobile platforms — we have them.”
