This STORM is now MIL-STD-810H Certified...


CopaSat, LLC, has announced that the company's STORM terminal is now MIL-STD-810H certified while also being qualified on the IntelSatOne Flex network.

Developed with CopaSAT’s unconventional warfare customers in mind, the CopaSAT STORM SATCOM terminal was demonstrated to withstand a series of environmental stress tests including shock, vibration, extreme temperature, water infiltration and more. The SATCOM-On-The-Move (SOTM) terminal has been tested on both tactical land vehicles, such as MRZRs and tactical maritime vessels, making it field-ready, or even combat-ready.

As of March 12, 2020, the CopaSAT STORM also became an IntelsatOne Flex qualified terminal, authorized to operate on Intelsat’s GEO satellite fleet, including its HTS network.

The CopaSAT STORM terminal features a Kymeta™ u7 flat-panel, Electronically Steered Antenna (ESA), iDirect 950 modem and a 25 Watt Block Up Converter (BUC) for ultimate high- performance satellite communications on-the-move or on-the-pause. This fully integrated terminal provides a mobile hotspot utilizing SD-WAN to select between cellular, Wi-Fi or satellite networks for optimization, failover and balancing.

The STORM terminal also accepts external GPS sources such as Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR) for selective availability and anti-spoofing. An optional bracket for an external MANET handheld radio is available with power and Ethernet at the bracket. The STORM offers many additional options for maximum flexibility and usability.

Obie Johnson, CEO, CopaSAT, said it is exciting to offer the first-ever MIL-STD-810H tested SOTM/COTP terminal using the Kymeta™ u7 flat-panel Electronically Scanned Antenna. This communications capability will be a force multiplier and is an affordable and high-throughput solution for multiple military applications. The company is now in general production for the CopaSAT STORM in the firm's new Largo, Florida state-of-the-art facility.
