MD-1366 EBEM Modem

Enhanced Bandwidth Efficient (Point-to-Point) SATCOM Modem

The U.S. Government selected the Viasat MD-1366 Enhanced Bandwidth Efficient Modem (EBEM) to set the new standard (MIL-STD-188-165B/STANAG 4486 ed. 3) for high-speed, high-performance, flexibility and compatibility in a Single Channel Per Carrier (SCPC) modem. This modem uses the latest advanced modulation and coding technology, while also providing backwards interoperability with the majority of SCPC modems. It supports a large range of user data rates, from 64 kbps up to 155 Mbps, and provides power and bandwidth efficiency with 16-ary modulation and Turbo coding.

The EBEM comes in a standard strategic configuration (MD-1366/U) and a tactical configuration (MD-1366A/U) that is housed in a ruggedized chassis to support antenna handover mode when dual-antennas are required.
