Mission-Critical Airborne, Unmanned Arial Vehicle (UAV) and Beyond Line-of-Sight (BLoS) SATCOMs
SATCOMS-on-the-Move technology in Ku, X, and other frequency bands provides high-bandwidth data to support a variety of Unmanned Arial Vehicle (UAV) missions, including:
- High-throughput links for Relay UAVs to complete data acquisition missions rapidly
- HD video transmissions by surveillance UAVs
- Trunks from UAVs to deployed troops beyond line-of-sight (BLoS)
SATCOMs-on-the-Move technology can provide vital Command, Control and Communications (C3) beyond enemy lines, from theater to a rear Command or Headquarters, or back to a home country for tactical high-speed UAV Beyond Line of Sight (BLos) links.
For UAV-mounted links, the Spacebridge MU7400 On-the-Move / Trunking VSAT Router is a unique military-grade all-outdoor unit designed to meet intense operational demands. As an Ultimate Series VSAT, it supports point-to-point SCPC connectivity as well as hub-spoke RCS MF-TDMA, ASCPC™ and SCPC including optional mesh overlay connectivity. Satellite IP service download up to 100 Mbps and upload up to 100 Mbps, plus Government-grade encryption, VLAN and IPSec VPN, wide range transmit and receive range and built-in OpenAMIP for SOTM antenna interoperability are just some of the features of this compact, optionally DC-powered unit.Read More..
Bandwidth and Waveform Switching On-Demand
UAV missions require high capacity links, but not always on a continuous and constant basis. SpaceBridge WaveSwitch™ technology is especially suited to supporting the dynamic nature of military operations and sporadic missions. WaveSwitch™ efficiently allocates high throughput links to terminals only when needed.
UAV-mounted terminals employ small footprint/low profile antennas (LPAs) for aerodynamics and stealth. Spread Spectrum transmission can be required in order to meet satellite operator and user transmission specs thought these kinds of terminals. In addition, Spread Spectrum signals may also be desired to mitigate risk of detection and jamming in defense applications.
The Space Bridge Advanced Military-Grade Satellite Modem AMT-83L is designed to meet MIL-STD-188-165A specifications from the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for two-way satellite communication tactical terminal requirements in Defense Satellite Communications Systems (DSCS). With waveform and bandwidth flexibility, borne from Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology, the Advanced Military Grade Satellite Modem AMT-83L can dynamically select between network-efficient MF-TDMA and channel-efficient SCPC transmission to meet a wide range of missions. Wide-range transmit and receive Dynamic Direct Sequence Spread spectrum (DSSS) capabilities, and OpenAMIP SOTM antenna interoperability features can support UAV network applications.
