HERNDON, Va., Sept. 10, 2020 – COMSAT is further expanding its international terminal, hardware and service footprint following the signing of a new distribution agreement with Orbit Communications Systems Inc.
The addition of Orbit’s Multi-Purpose Terminals (MPT) bolsters the extensive COMSAT portfolio, positioning COMSAT as a single source for both hardware and connectivity services for demanding government customers worldwide. The MPT WGX models deliver added value to COMSAT’s connectivity offering as the reliable, modular, multi-role aviation terminals are designed to be fully interoperable with the US Government’s military Wideband Global Satcom (WGS) network and are optimized for use over Inmarsat’s Global Xpress (GX) Ka band constellation.
Available in 30cm (12in) or 46cm (18in), the lightweight, small-footprint terminals couple high transmit and receive performance and reliability, enabling a wide range of communication opportunities for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), military mission aircraft, rotary-wing platforms and business jets. With only three Line Replaceable Units (LRUs), the system is lighter and easier to install than existing offerings. Built to fulfill “anytime, anywhere” connectivity needs, the MPT WGX terminals provide outstanding RF and tracking performance for customers operating in the harshest environmental conditions
The addition of Orbit’s OceanTRx hardware to the COMSAT range delivers further flexibility in creating customized connectivity solutions tailored to individual vessel needs. The Ocean TRX hardware range supports naval, cruise and oceangoing platforms delivering multi band terminals – C/Ka and Ku/Ka – to support high-speed data transmission to combined networks of MEO, LEO, HEO, and GEO constellations.
