Mobile Satellite Broadcast Terminal

    674

    ERA has developed a low cost, very low profile scanning antenna allowing direct commercial broadcast TV services to be delivered to mobile users such as automobiles on the move. The antenna is designed for operation at Ku band, packed in a 100mm thick module. The technology can readily be extended to Ka-Band and to other applications such as military or commercial aerospace. The terminal is the size of a laptop computer and has been used for real time data transfer over satellite at data rates of up to 256kbps.
