Low profile military SOTM terminal
24 July 2012
Elbit Systems has announced the launch of the ELSAT 2100, a Satellite-On-The-Move (SOTM) terminal.
The ELSAT 2100 is an 80cm diameter low profile rugged bi-directional Military Satellite Communications (MILSATCOM) vehicular SOTM antenna with outstanding characteristics. Based on a new generation planar antenna technology developed for high performance and efficiency of low profile SOTM antennas, the ELSAT 2100 delivers a six-fold performance improvement over the ELSAT 2000. This results in 50Mbps downlink and 10Mbps uplink speeds.
The system features an advanced triple tracking mechanism based on a combination of Gyro, GPS and RSSI (Receive Signal Strength Indication), with a 110 degrees elevation capability for superior SOTM tracking and relocking.
The system features a Tx-Gain of 33.4dbi, and Rx-Gain of 33dbi, and a G/T of 12 dB/k (including Radom loss), with an ideal radiation pattern of -14dbw/4kHz. It also delivers outstanding SOTM performance as well as superior efficiency resulting in substantial bandwidth cost efficiency.
Designed for demanding tactical vehicular military SATCOM on-the-move applications, the system is designed for Ku and extended Ku band operation
ELSAT 2100 is fully integrated with Elbit’s InterSKY 4M, enabling breakthrough performance and efficiency enhancements. The integration within Elbit's C4I military systems ensures seamless broadband connectivity in LOS, BLOS and OTH combat arenas, positioning InterSKY 4M as a leading Tactical Military SatCom Platform.
