The disruptive SATCOM-On-The-Move (SOTM) solution delivered through CopaSAT and Kymeta™ Corporation partnership brings connectivity to commercial and military vehicles and vessels that have, until now, been cut off from such services.
The custom-engineered CopaSAT STORM delivers reliable tactical communications to small, fast-moving vehicles and vessels operating in remote, communications-severed and inhospitable environments.
The CopaSAT STORM is a mission-ready, ruggedized, fully-integrated, Ku-band flat-panel terminal that includes a Kymeta u7 antenna, iDirect 950mp satellite router and a 25 Watt block upconverter (BUC). It is available in three different configurations including commercial, military and transportable. Advanced options are available that make it possible to add LTE capabilities, a WiFi access point, MANET radio, Newtec modem, as well as numerous mounting options for MRZRs, vehicle luggage racks and more.
The CopaSAT STORM is on display during SATELLITE 2019 at stand #2238 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from May 6 to 9 in Washington, D.C.
Steve Carpenter, General Manager, CopaSAT, said there are so many places, vehicles and vessels where you can’t use Commercial-Off-The-Self (COT) SATCOM solutions today. For example, MRZRs, 11meter, rigid, hull inflatable boats (RHIBs) and special operations craft. Legacy solutions don’t fit and cannot track fast enough to remain connected with a satellite while the vehicle or vessel is moving at high speed. This has always been a challenge. The CopaSAT STORM addresses the challenge, making all of these applications possible for the first time. It truly redefines situation awareness.
Paul Mattear, VP of Business Development and Sales at Kymeta noted that the CopaSAT team has built an impressive solution that meets the mission critical situations its customers operate in. It is tremendously exciting to see Kymeta™ u7 satellite antenna technology being deployed in highly mobile environments to support data, voice and video across military and government applications that have never been connected before.
