Canadian Army selects Rockwell Collins satellite communications terminals

The SWE-DISH CCT120 Suitcase® satellite terminal by Rockwell Collins has been selected by the Canadian Army for its Land Forces Portable Satellite Terminal program.

The contract calls for Rockwell Collins to provide 30 CCT120s with an option for 20 additional terminals.

“The CCT120 is the quickest-to-air terminal in the world, giving the Canadian Army access to advanced satellite technology that can be operated by one person in the field,” said Lee Obst, managing director for Rockwell Collins in Canada. “We look forward to providing this vital communication capability for this program.”

Based on innovative modular architecture, the CCT120 allows easy field operator changes of the antenna system, transceiver, and a plug-in modem cartridge to fit changing mission needs. The terminal’s different modules support a variety of frequency bands, power levels and modem types. It is certified for use on standard commercial SATCOM networks as well as the WGS constellation of military satellites and is provided in airline-checkable rugged transit cases enabling easy customer transport.

The CCT120 also gives users easy, one-person operation, an intuitive graphical user interface, trouble-free antenna pointing and auto peaking, and rugged construction.
