Cubic's GATR satellite approved for FRP
Cubic Mission Solutions has received approval to begin full rate production (FRP) of GATR satellite antenna systems for the US Army’s Transportable Tactical Command Communications (T2C2) programme, Cubic announced on 16 January.
The FRP decision will enable the army to procure and field Cubic's GATR satellite antenna systems to army units.
The GATR 1.2 metre and 2.4 metre inflatable satellite terminals provide high-bandwidth network communications and mission command for initial entry and sustained forward operations. The system’s compact size and design provides significant improvements in transportability, bandwidth and set-up speed.
The GATR satellite antenna system's inflatable feature allows it to provide a larger dish size in similar transit volume and weight compared to a traditional rigid dish, with increased capability and bandwidth efficiency.
Cubic expects the army to begin fielding T2C2 immediately.
Mike Twyman, president of Cubic Mission Solutions, said: ‘Our team has worked very hard to ensure that our GATR satellite systems offer transportability, high-bandwidth capabilities and ease of set up for army units as they go into battle.
‘Our expeditionary solutions will provide confidence and peace of mind for our customers' next missions. We are proud to continue our work with the US Army on T2C2 to ensure its mission readiness now and into the future.’
