Hughes ships HM400 for SkyGuardian
Hughes Network Systems has begun shipments of its multiband HM400 SATCOM modem to General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) for its MQ-9B SkyGuardian remotely piloted aircraft (RPA), the company announced on 7 February.
The HM400 modems will provide beyond-line-of-sight satellite-based communications capabilities to the SkyGuardian.
The specialised Hughes HM400, with open system architecture and software-definable modem and waveform technology, offers frequency reuse for high operational efficiency, high data throughput rates for HD video and data transmissions, and a low size, weight and power profile.
The fully integrated solution can support both military and commercial satellite frequencies and can be used during SAR and disaster response onboard Predator-variant aircraft.
