Features

The fully interoperable, joint service terminals are field proven in demanding off-road combat operational conditions and are currently deployed in theaters of operation worldwide. Current customers include the US DOD and international MODs. The General Dynamics SOTM terminal is the first such system to be licensed by the FCC for use in the United States.

  • Antenna, positioner, servo controller, beacon receiver, low noise amplifier, block up and down converters and high efficiency solid state power amplifier, all under radome and above the deck
  • FCC and ITU compliant
  • 'On-satellite' tracking accuracy achieved via a combination of integral satellite beacon receiver, gyro stabilization, and inertial measurement unit (CFE or avaialble as an option)
  • Integral air-to-air head exchanger for high temperature environments
  • 24 x 7 x 365 tech support for all systems
