ND SatCom Launches MPT1000 at IDEX 2007

ND SatCom Introduces New Military Portable Satcom Terminal

Friedrichshafen, February 7, 2007 – ND SatCom, an SES ASTRA company and a leading global supplier of satellite-based broadband VSAT, broadcast, government and defence communication network solutions, will be introducing a new, light-weight yet powerful and extremely easily deployable portable military terminal to support transmission of voice, data and video. The terminal allows for fully meshed, single hop network transmission.

The MPT1000 is ideally suited for out of area missions, in remote or rough terrain where low weight and rapid terminal deployment is key. The terminal is portable and stowed in two cases, allowing for easy transportation whether on foot, ATV or car. The system can be pre-configured, hence requires no on-the-spot configuration and is up and running in under 15 minutes.

The portable terminal is designed for Ku-Band operation. An X-Band version is currently under development. The terminal consists of a one meter six-piece twin skinned aluminium reflector antenna, an LNB, a 4 W SSPA, a tablet PC with integrated GPS and a compass, as well as the stand alone ruggedized modem. The modem is based on ND SatCom’s proven SkyWAN® technology which offers utmost flexibility, scalability and efficiency, and allows for data rates up to 8 Mbit/s. MF-TDMA satellite channel access is used to provide fully meshed connectivity between all network nodes and to efficiently exploit the satellite channel capacity. Resources are assigned to a user station only when needed. The integration of real-time and non-real-time services is emphasized in the SkyWAN® approach which is based on packet switching technology. The MPT1000 provides an Ethernet interface which connects the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) based networks and equipment.

The MPT1000 fulfills the MIL-STD-810E requirements and is thus operational in almost all climatic conditions from cold to hot and from dry to humid. Due to the wide range DC power input, the system can be operated with different types of batteries available in the customer’s logistic chain or directly from the transport vehicle.

“The MPT1000 is the answer to our customers’ increasing demand for portable satcom solutions. Wherever battle groups go the MPT1000 will provide connectivity to the Network Centric Communications System. I am convinced that the MPT1000 will prove to be a key component in the support of out of area missions where communication is vital”, says Harald Reder, CEO of ND SatCom Defence.

The MPT1000 will be launched at the IDEX Exhibition in Abu Dhabi from February 18 to 22. The terminal can be seen on ND SatCom’s booth no. A73 in the German Pavilion.
