Orbit Unveils its Multi-Purpose SATCOM Terminals for Armoured Vehicles

March 07, 2024 – Orbit Communications Systems, a leading global provider of maritime and airborne SATCOM terminals, tracking ground station solutions, and mission-critical airborne audio management systems, is to unveil its Line-of-Sight Multi-Purpose Terminals (MPT) for SATCOM communication for armored land platforms of all sizes.

Orbit’s line of Multi-Purpose Terminals, including the MPT-30 and MPT-46, redefine mobile communication with unparalleled reliability and speed. Designed with versatility in mind, these compact, yet powerful, terminals can be installed on a variety of mobile platforms, from armored vehicles to ATVs, ensuring seamless broadband connectivity in even the most challenging terrains. Their low size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP) design offers high performance – over 126 Mbps for downloads and up to 29 Mbps for uploads. This ensures that high-volume data, including live video streams, can be transmitted without interruption, a critical factor for mission success.

Moreover, the terminals are built for the future, supporting a wide range of satellite orbits—Low Earth Orbit (LEO), Medium Earth Orbit (MEO), Geostationary Orbit (GEO), and Highly Elliptical Orbit (HEO)—and are compatible with both Ku or Ka frequency bands. By catering to the diverse needs of modern military operations, they enable forces to maintain critical communication lines, enhancing situational awareness and operational effectiveness across a spectrum of environments.

The terminals comply with MIL-STD and Civil standards as well as with International, national and satellite SATCOM regulations. They are compatible with military satellite systems, making them an ideal choice for Intelligence, Reconnaissance, and Surveillance (ISR) applications, which require highly accurate tracking capabilities, as well as meeting the ‘everywhere, all-the-time’ coverage requirements of military users.

“We are proud to further extend our MPT family and offer its high-performance proven capabilities to military vehicles of all sizes.” says Dany Eshchar, CEO of Orbit Communications Systems. “. Orbit’s MPT systems have been deployed on various mobile platforms around the world and now can provide “anywhere, anytime’ communications to the forces in the field and ensure successful completion of complex missions such as border protection, ISTAR missions, and more.”
