Canadian Army selects suitcase SATCOM terminals

29th May 2014 - 15:16 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Canadian Army has selected the Rockwell Collins SWE-DISH CCT120 Suitcase satellite terminal to fulfil requirements for its Land Forces Portable Satellite Terminal programme. Rockwell Collins announced a contract to supply the equipment on 28 May.

The contract will see the company deliver 30 CCT120 terminals with an option for 20 additional terminals.

The CCT120 is designed with a modular architecture to allow the operator to easily change the antenna system, transceiver, and a plug-in modem cartridge in the field to support changing mission needs. The terminal’s different modules support a variety of frequency bands, power levels and modem types. It is certified for use on standard commercial SATCOM networks as well as the WGS constellation of military satellites and is provided in airline-checkable rugged transit cases enabling easy customer transport.

Lee Obst, managing director, Rockwell Collins in Canada, said: ‘The CCT120 is the quickest-to-air terminal in the world, giving the Canadian Army access to advanced satellite technology that can be operated by one person in the field. We look forward to providing this vital communication capability for this programme.'

The CCT120 also gives users easy, one-person operation, an intuitive graphical user interface, trouble-free antenna pointing and auto peaking, and rugged construction.
