Globecomm—WGS Terminal Win (SATCOM)

[SatNews] Globecomm, a global provider of communications solutions and services, has been awarded an order for its WGS Certified Auto Explorer Lightweight Transport (LT) terminals.

The Auto Explorer LT 1.2-Meter X-band and 1.0-Meter Ka-band configurations are qualified to operate over the Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) constellation. The order includes the baseline terminal with three RF kits, including Ku-, X- and Ka-band. The LT tri-band version allows the user to operate on commercial and military satellites. Many government users have traditionally only leveraged commercial SATCOM. With access to WGS capacity, government users now require remote terminals to leverage the military X- and Ka-bands as well. This award represents the first Auto Explorer LT Ka-band order since announcing its certification earlier this year. Auto Explorer transportable satellite terminals are lightweight, high-performance, two-way communication systems designed for military units and government agencies. They seamlessly extend user networks to remote edge locations to enable secure voice, data and video communications.
