Orbit to expand multi-purpose airborne satcom terminal development

Orbit Communications Systems Ltd. (TASE: ORBI) intends to expand the development of its new Multi-Purpose Terminal (MPT) for airborne satcom to include helicopters, the company said.

The company received an order for approximately USD 3 million from a global provider of defense products and services for the delivery of helicopter systems to a air force between 2018 and 2022.

Built to military standard (MIL-STD), the 30-cm antenna (MPT30) will deliver data communications via satellite to a wide range of military helicopters. The system was designed to overcome the many challenges posed by helicopter installations, such as constant vibration and the need for a self-cooling mechanism when placed behind the exhaust systems.

Orbit´s 30-cm Multi-Purpose Terminal (MPT30) delivers Internet-based data communications via satellite to helicopters. Built to military standard (MIL-STD), the MPT30 features minimal Size, Weight and Power consumption (SWaP). The ultra-compact and cost-effective terminal has been ruggedized to overcome the many challenges posed by helicopter installations, including constant vibration and the need for a self-cooling mechanism when placed behind the exhaust systems.

Orbit Communications Systems Ltd. is wholly focused on precision tracking-based communications – in the areas of satcom, telemetry and remote sensing – and provides an innovative solution for airborne audio management.
