Advantech Engages in a Solution with European NATO Client with Engage™ VSAT Flyaway Terminal and XTAR

Their client is a NATO customer that welcomes the latest SATCOM technology.

Advantech Wireless announced that its 2.4m Engage™ Class High Performance VSAT Flyaway Terminal has been certified by a NATO customer and received XTAR Certification.

The New Engage™ Class 2.4m Flyaway VSAT Terminal Solution includes the most advanced SATCOM technology available today. This flexible and transportable VSAT solution from Advantech Wireless is a fully integrated tri-band system designed for easy deployment and use.

The terminal is based on a high efficiency, ruggedized tri-band ready 2.4 Meter Flyaway Antenna, which can cover X-Band, Ku-Band or Ka-Band, by replacing the feed only. The antenna is optionally fully motorized with an integrated satellite finding controller.

The terminal has built-in two independent unique triple access mode satellite modems based on the new ASAT II™system or SCPC mode modems AMT-83L, Mil 165A Grade and DSSS Spread Spectrum Technology. The ASAT II™system technology allows the same modem to operate three different access wave forms, and achieve the most efficient bandwidth utilization possible.

The RF section includes the award winning Second Generation GaN based technology SSPA/SSPBs: X-Band from 20W to 100W, Ku-Band from 16W to 125W and Ka-Band from 10W to 40W. The entire terminal is fully compliant with MIL-STD-188-164a, MIL-STD- 810F, NATO STANAG 4484, IP65, and XTAR.

Cristi Damian, VP Business Development at Advantech Wireless said that these advanced VSAT terminals include state-of-the-art satellite technology. The system can uplink two separate carriers and hence establish a solid connection backbone between a field command center and distributed resources. By selecting the best Advantech knowhow and technology, they managed to offer almost 10 times the data rate originally planned by the customer. XTAR satellites proved to be an outstanding partner and an ideal technical choice.
