High Speed Modems for C4I Satcom

High Speed Modems for C4I Satcom

Commercial Broadband Modem 100

Bring full-mesh MF-TDMA networking to any micro satellite terminal with the embeddable ViaSat Commercial Broadband Modem 100 (CBM-100). This satcom module is compact enough to integrate satcom terminals sized at 1 meter or less, and delivers secure, high-speed networking for on-the-move and at-the-halt operations.

MD-1366 EBEM

The ViaSat Enhanced Bandwidth Efficient Modem (EBEM) is the only commercially-available bandwidth efficient modem certified to MIL-STD-188-165B and compliant with STANAG 4486 ed. 3. The MD-1366 defines a new military standard in FDMA for high-speed satellite communications. MD-1366 Enhanced Bandwidth Efficient ModemUsing military and commercial satellites at X-, C-, Ku-, and Ka-band frequencies, the MD-1366 delivers much-needed capacity for the military's high-speed broadband and multimedia transmissions.

The MD-1366 is available in standard strategic configuration (MD-1366/U) and a tactical configuration (MD-1366A/U) that is housed in a ruggedized chassis. This modem uses the latest advanced modulation and coding technology to increase efficiency and throughput, while also providing backwards interoperability with the majority of Single Channel Per Carrier modems.

LinkWayS2

The ViaSat LinkWayS2 modem is the battlefield standard for C4I communications. This hubless MF-TDMA VSAT system enables you to cost-effectively integrate a variety of applications into a single platform in any network topology – full-mesh, star (hub/spoke), or hybrid. Adaptive on-demand bandwidth allocation and bandwidth-efficient coding and modulation engineered into the LinkWayS2 system gives you cost-effective broadband connections between any LinkWay-equipped sites. Features such as turbo coding and 8PSK modulation provide substantial bandwidth savings, reducing your transponder costs compared with other systems.

Delivering network-centric connectivity, the LinkWayS2 system integrates voice, video, and data applications, automatically routing information over a mesh, single satellite hop network via unicast or multicast. LinkWayS2 modems are operating on Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) satellites and can be used over any commercial or military satellite on X-, C-, Ku-, or Ka-band using loop-back, split-beam or cross-strapped transponders.

MD-1377 Joint IP Modem (JIPM)

JIPM combines flexible satellite networking with information assurance capabilities to deliver secure, high-speed IP communications to the military and government agencies. JIPM is the Department of Defense (DoD) satellite modem standard for connecting all U.S. forces. This system powers an IP networking backbone across the battlespace, enabling today's information-hungry warfighters to efficiently share voice, video, and data communications over military and commercial satellites (including Ka-band) using adaptive and variable coded modulation techniques.
