Vislink launches military spec Motorised MSAT for secure communications
Hemel Hempstead, UK, Monday 19th August 2013 – Vislink, the global provider of satellite communications technologies, has today announced the immediate availability of a motorised version of its Mantis MSAT satellite data terminal. A rugged product that’s resistant to extreme environmental conditions, the MSAT is designed to operate in any environment, anywhere in the world.
Following the successful launch of the military-spec Mantis MSAT last year, the new Motorised MSAT adds the option of a 120cm reflector. It also provides improved data throughput rates of up to 10Mbps, making the MSAT the ideal system for surveillance missions in challenging or hostile environments.
With simultaneous three-axis motorisation and one-button auto acquire, the MSAT terminal offers full support for two-way video, voice and data communications and is designed for rapid deployment and one-man operation in a variety of scenarios. Despite these additional features the Motorised MSAT still weighs less than 25Kgs.
Stephen Rudd, CEO of Vislink International Ltd said, “The Motorised MSAT was developed in response to growing demand from military personnel for an automated version of our successful Mantis MSAT product. The new MSAT meets the same high-bandwidth connectivity requirements as the original unit, but now that it’s automated the MSAT can provide a communications link quicker and easier than ever before. This can make all the difference in surveillance scenarios, and can enable disparate teams of military personnel to stay connected whatever the situation.”
The Motorised MSAT is a full tri-band optioned system that can support X, Ka and Ku configurations. It is capable of delivering high-definition video and data from anywhere in the world and the feeds can be swapped in the field, building on the flexibility and portability that customers have come to expect from the MSAT range. The MSAT also meets MIL 810F and DEF-STAN military specifications for shock, vibration, sand and rain, and is provided as a ‘one-box’ solution incorporating the antenna, modem and all electronics.
