ETL will be demonstrating their Hurricane 64x64 L-band matrix, which is used to provide flexibility in uplink and downlink SATCOMs including video traffic, data management and TVRO applications.
This compact 64x64 Matrix on the market (4RU) also helps to optimize the use of receiving capacity, has integrated LNB powering and fiber inputs. The Hurricane is a distributive (full fan-out) Matrix with signal capacity of 64 inputs x 64 outputs with features to suit specific RF needs for each satellite feed. The high resilience matrix has minimal downtime due to hot-swap of all active components.
In addition, ETL will also be exhibiting their StingRay RF over Fiber Links with an array of fibre modules covering L-, S-band and broadband frequencies, the choice of fixed or automatic gain control and the option for LNB powering. Providing a reliable alternative to copper coaxial cable, the StingRay RF over Fiber links convert RF to optical signals up to 10 km. away with options for distances up to 500 km.
