Selex introduces new tactical SATCOM solution

8th May 2014 - 06:09 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Selex ES has expanded its satellite communications (SATCOM) offerings with the launch of a new robust, lightweight, on-the-move, tactical SATCOM system called TacSat Razor Antenna.

The rapid deploy TacSat Razor Antenna weighs 1kg and has a maximum 20W power output in the UHF tacsat band. It is designed specifically for physically demanding battlefield conditions, whilst addressing the relevant radiation hazard standards.

The system can be operated in hands-free mode while attached to the side of a standard military rucksack, enabling soldiers to stay connected while carrying weapons or other kit. Alternatively, it can be mounted on a standard tripod or camera spike or on a vehicle using a magnetic mount.

To reduce soldier down-time, the system has been designed to be easy to operate. The user pulls a strap to launch the antenna from its housing, and the antenna is withdrawn back into the container by pulling the same strap in the other direction after use.

With a modular construction to facilitate cleaning and ease of repair in the field, the TacSat Razor Antenna is environmentally qualified to Mil Std 810-G and is IP68 rated for water immersion.
