ISRAEL. Spacecom, operator of the AMOS satellite fleet, and Get SAT, company specializing in small, lightweight satellite communication terminals for airborne, ground, and maritime applications, revealed that using AMOS-17's steerable KA-band 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.
Enabled by AMOS-17's KA-band HTS beams and small terminals at both ends, the team created a small-footprint, high-capacity, true-tactical solution for deployed units, according to claims made by the companies.
Get SAT officials claim that their Micro-SAT terminal demonstrated a return channel of over 10Mbps, offering optimized size, weight, and power for broadband communications required by various ISR sensors.
By using a transportable 1.2m. Ka-band hub and the capabilities of Spacecom's AMOS-17 digital payload, the team created what is intended to be an ideal configuration for Communications On-The-Move applications in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Asia.
