REHOVOT, Israel. Get SAT, company specializing in small, lightweight satellite communication (SATCOM) terminals for airborne, ground, and maritime applications and R4 Integration, Inc., provider of airborne roll-on/roll-off and shoulder mount communication systems for U.S. and partner government aircraft, announced the completion and airworthiness certification of their C-130 Multi-Purpose Hatch system (MPHS).
Developed to support roll-on/roll-off requirements of demanding Special Operations customers and to alleviate design concerns of large radomes, the low-profile KA-band MPHS is designed to provide enroute planning C5I support to SOF on all C-130/L-100 variants of aircraft.
Additionally, the commercial and military KA-band solution is desinged to reduce weight by 50% from previous hatch mount solutions.
Based on the micronized, ruggedized, and portable Milli SAT terminal that replaces large and bulky alternatives consisting of multi-modem and control units, the solution aims to leverage Get SAT's efficient flat panel antenna technologies intended to enable fully autonomous operation for high-bandwidth data rates.
