GetSAT, an innovator in small, lightweight satellite communication terminals for airborne, ground, and maritime applications, announced today it has secured a multi-million-dollar contract from an undisclosed armed force to supply mil-standard micronized tactical high-bandwidth broadband communications battlefield ManPacks. This initial project based on GetSAT’s Nano SAT-H KA-band terminal, will bring complete 'satellite on-the-move' (SoTM) broadband communications – voice, video and data – to the tactical battlefield level.
GetSAT opens a new era of real-time video, audio and information flow by providing direct high bandwidth communications between ground forces and headquarters. The ability to attain seamless 'on the move' communications furthers flexible tactical and strategic decision- making processes on constantly changing battlefields. Nano Sat-H is an ultra-portable lightweight, low-profile terminal optimized for 'on-the-move' applications and man-carried portability and mobility. Simply put, Nano SAT-H replaces a truck load of equipment. Weighing only two kilograms, it provides autonomous operation for transmission and reception of high bandwidth data-rates at more than 2 Mbps.
Kfir Benjamin, CEO of GetSAT stated, "Connectivity will now be limitless. The ability of ground forces to provide full motion video directly to HQ is the next horizon for milcom broadband communications. No longer will decision makers be in the 'fog of the battlefield', rather they will be able to see and hear in real time. Get SAT is proud to supply this tech savvy military. Our leap forward in micronized technologies enables our team to lead SWaP and 'Satcom on the move' innovations."
