Cobham Introduces New Multi-Band Lightweight VSAT Terminal

Orlando, FL - Cobham has introduced its new multi-band Lightweight VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) Terminal (LVT) man-portable satellite antenna system. Cobham's TracStar LVT series is scalable to multiple reflector sizes, multiple frequency bands (Ka, Ku, X) and multiple amplifier configurations. Its modular design features field-swappable antenna feeds and RF chains. Once assembled, it can be manually pointed using one of our easy-to-use handheld aids, which includes a smartphone application.

Cobham's TracStar LVT has a rugged yet lightweight Carbon Fiber reflector and tripod with a total weight of less than 30 lbs (13.6 kg). The outrigger tripod is available in both a high and low profile version, to fulfill a diverse array of environmental requirements. The system can be transported in a ruggedized backpack or hardened case to withstand everyday portability. Organizations with a need for lightweight and quick-deploy antenna terminals, such as the United States Army, would greatly benefit from these features.

"This fly-away antenna system offers superior ease-of-use and allows personnel with little or no satellite experience to operate mobile satellite communications equipment, enabling the user to access any broadband application over satellite in less than ten minutes," said Fred Cahill, president of Cobham Antenna Systems. "Our current and potential customers in law enforcement, emergency response, homeland security, military rapid deployment and news gathering services will benefit from these technical capabilities."
