AMOS-17 brings together the optimal G/T and high performing satellite terminal that resulted in a throughput of 5 MBPS forward and 25 MPBS return rate.
Israeli fleet operator Spacecom and the provider of micronized satellite terminals Get SAT have announced the successful testing of Get SATs next-generation Micro Sling Blade Ka-Band Satcom-On-The-Move terminal on AMOS-17’s advanced, digital Ka-Band. The test was hosted at the SMS Teleport in Rugby, UK.
AMOS-17, the advanced HTS satellite serving Africa, was chosen by Get SAT for testing its newest electronically steered antenna (ESA), bringing together optimal G/T and a high performing satellite terminal that resulted in a throughput of 5 MBPS forward and 25 MPBS return rate.
According to the company, the combination of AMOS-17s capabilities and the Get SAT Micro Sling Blade ESA offers superior performance satellite communication, flexible solutions, and competitive advantages for customers in aviation and land-on-the-move markets.
Get SATs scalable ESA terminal is a fully integrated, all-in-one, a modem-agnostic solution that includes a built-in Get SAT Micro Modem and GS950 modem (iDirect 950). As an off-the-shelf, end-to-end terminal with industry-leading SWaP and no trade-offs, it provides reliable communications at a low-profile to meet a range of governments, defence, and first responder applications.
Kfir Benjamin, Get SATs CEO, said: The Micro Sling Blades successful proof of concept testing with Spacecoms AMOS-17 satellite is another step forward. Get SAT is now beginning to supply this super low-profile ESA to government and defence customers requiring powerful, lightweight SWaP solutions.
Ofer Asif, Senior VP Business Development & Marketing of Spacecom, added: The AMOS-17 is an advanced digital platform serving an array of customers in a wide range of applications. We are keen to work with companies such as Get SAT that bring new and exciting applications to Spacecoms offerings.
