SWE-DISH, Saab Unveil Satellite Technology

By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributor

DataPath’s SWE-DISH Satellite Systems AB reportedly has announced a new SATCOM on-the-move terminal that integrates SWE-DISH’s (News - Alert) satellite terminal technology and Saab’s stabilized platform technology.

The solution has been designed for both land and marine applications with close to worldwide coverage and access to almost any commercial Ku band satellite in service today for up to 10 Mbps broadband communications.
The SATCOM ontheMove Terminal can provide broadband on-the-move SATCOM capability and is interoperable with legacy systems, as it meets Federal Communications Commission and worldwide satellite operator requirements in legacy transmission modes. The companies say that operation within the common infrastructure is essential for networking because a number of legacy terminals are deployed across the globe.
As the Saab navigation and steering system is autonomous from the satellite link and maintains pointing during blocking, reacquisition is instantaneous when line of sight is reestablished. The system provides accurate pointing on land or sea from the poles to the equator. The low weight platform can easily be mounted on any vehicle or vessel and is an effective solution for all platforms requiring streaming video, video conferencing, net meeting, file transfer protocol, and battlefield management.
The SATCOM on-the-move terminal has been developed and tested in a wide range of circumstances and tough situation. The terminal is ideal for highly maneuverable, high-speed platforms such as off-road vehicles, smaller inshore boats, and medium-size littoral ships.
According to Lars Jehrlander, chief executive officer of SWE-DISH Satellite Systems, SWE-DISH’s high-performance antenna and Saab’s revolutionary stabilizer keep the satellite link fixed and accurate no matter the terrain or the maneuver.
“Now it’s time to raise the bar on our competitors and give end users advanced broadband on-the-move,” Jehrlander said.
