The Saterra is a flexible, resilient, reliable Tri-Band VSAT terminal system. It meets the Government’s (DoD and Civilian) and commercial market’s need for improved Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) and low-cost transportable SATCOM Terminals. Saterra’s ruggedized form factor ensures reliable operation in harsh environments. It is the perfect solution to deliver high-speed data, audio, and video communications services todeployed personnel.

The Saterra Ku-band is a VSAT terminal operating in Ku-band. It comprises four reflectors (0.6 m, 0.8 m, 1.0 m, and 1.3 m), modular feed, integrated RF components, an AutoAQYR (acquire) positioner, and tripods. The terminal is modem agnostic as it supports any L-band modem. It also supports all modems that follow the Open Antenna Modem Interface Protocol (OpenAMIP) protocol. Several integrated modem options are available, including a Beacon Receiver or iDirect 950mp. The modular design enables the change of band or aperture size in five minutes or less.The tool-free assembly allows setup in less than 10 minutes. A button push initiates the AutoAQYR acquisition algorithm to obtain satellite lock in less than three minutes. The optional automatic re-peaking configuration ensures signal lock.

The intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) facilitates remote operation of the SATCOM terminal. Several integrated features available on Saterra Ku-band are accessible through the GUI. The terminal is compliant with FCC 25.209, Eutelsat EESS 502 Issue 15 Rev. 1, Intelsat IESS-601, and environmental specification MIL-STD-810G. Every unit goes through a series of rigorous tests at our in-house facility to ensure quality and performance. Based on the user’s needs, the Saterra Ku-band is configured as a one-person lift, airline-checkable, ruggedized, single-case or dual-case configuration.
