Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd., a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced today the collaboration with Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT), one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of high-performance wire and cable, on a newly designed ESA terminal with an integrated Thermal Management Solution. The uniquely designed small form factor ESA terminal is on display at the Satellite 2020 show in Washington DC at CIT’s booth.
Gilat's Electronically Steered Antenna (ESA) was the first-ever to demonstrate in-flight operation over Ka on a commercial aircraft. A series of successful test flights took place over the last few months over GEO and LEO satellites. The ESA terminal is a fully electronic beam steering, no moving parts terminal, featuring wide instantaneous bandwidth, wideband frequency support, instantaneous beam switching and gate-to-gate operation. The elegant compact design by CIT exhibits an ultra-low profile, small footprint and an all-inclusive offering of outdoor antenna equipment in a single line replacement unit for: antenna, baseplate, skirt and transparent radome.
"Gilat is most pleased to join forces with its partner, Carlisle Interconnect Technologies, and to present Gilat's ESA terminal in CIT’s booth at Satellite," said Roni Stoleru, Vice President Antenna Products & Strategy at Gilat. "Carlisle Interconnect Technologies’ team is the expert in innovative Thermal Management Solutions (TMS) and we couldn’t be more pleased with the elegant and compact design of Gilat's proven technology for which we are already seeing significant market interest."
“We are delighted to collaborate with Gilat and to display the ESA terminal in our booth in Satellite 2020," said Kris Samuelson, Director of Sales, IFCE/Interiors at CIT. “Gilat's proven and scalable technology easily integrates our Thermal Management Solution for both the small form factor business and general aviation market, as well as the commercial aviation market."
