Our Mobile Satcom systems use ViaSat ArcLight® technology to provide affordable, 2-way, always-on, broadband access via satellite – at speeds that match cable or DSL – to ground, airborne, and maritime platforms while in motion.
Designed for rapid deployment and high-speed connectivity, our man-portable satcom terminals enable forward-edge warfighters to make better decisions faster and adjust to unexpected mission changes.
We’re using the newest standards in Satcom networking to connect more warfighters more efficiently. From certified MIL-STD-188-165B modems to hubless MF-TDMA systems to GIG standardized access, our modems provide cost-effective, high-speed military satellite communications for a range of applications.
Many use the phrase, but we truly are the world leader in DoD UHF mobile satellite communication systems, providing user terminals as well as network gateways, infrastructure, and training systems to the U.S. and allied military forces.
