Rockwell Collins to provide SWE-DISH SATCOM terminals with CommuniCase Technology to Dutch Ministry of Defence
Rockwell Collins will be delivering 23 SWE-DISH CCT120 Suitcase satellite communication (SATCOM) terminals to the Dutch Ministry of Defence as part of a contract awarded to 2connect-IT, a Netherland-based distributor for SWE-DISH terminals.
The terminals will be provided through Rockwell Collins’ Swedish subsidiary (formerly SWE-DISH Satellite Systems AB).
“Today’s defense operations need portable communication solutions that provide fast, secure access to information. That’s exactly what the Suitcase CCT120 terminals offer to the Dutch Defence Ministry,” said Alan Caslavka, vice president and general manager, Command, Control, Communication and Intelligence Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
The Suitcase CCT120 solution selected by the Dutch Ministry of Defence supports Ku, Ka and X band communications, and recently received XTAR, Skynet and US Federal Communication Commission approvals, which confirms a high level of performance and assures the system’s deployability worldwide.
The Suitcase CCT120 satellite terminals feature a 1.2-meter antenna and CommuniCase Technology (CCT) based on a common modular architecture that enables users to easily switch out and plug in standard modems, amplifiers and other transmission and auxiliary components. With the CCT modules available today, more than 450 different configurations are possible. This enables a cost-effective means of providing a very high degree of operational flexibility and creates efficiencies in managing spare parts.
