6 Paradigm Connect 100T Satcom Terminals operating on Avanti airtime, checked and ready for delivery! Packing into 3 transit cases, simple to setup and capable of delivering a high-speed connection, it's an ideal satellite terminal for short-term use in demanding environments.
The first of many - 2 Tampa Microwave Manpack satcom terminals loaded with Avanti airtime, having completed pre-delivery checks, are good to go! This terminal offers the much needed demands of: Size, Weight and Power (SWaP), delivering almost instantaneous comms-at-the-pause, or ideal for fixed locations.
Heading out to emergency response workers operating in remote areas, these Iridium GO!'s provide a rugged, pocket sized satellite Wi-Fi hotspot. Simple to operate and connect, the GO! delivers a reliable global connection for voice, texts, email, Facebook/Twitter and more, all using your own smartphone or tablet! Shown here with the optional fixed installation kit, which allows you to use an external antenna, improving the signal without having to venture outdoors.
When you want to test a terminal on a different satellite beam… it’s time for a road trip! GRC’s engineering team have been completing testing on behalf of a customer, ensuring this Cobham Explorer satcom terminal and airtime is fully operational when the users need it.
Taking advantage of the sunshine for some hands-on testing with the Tampa Microwave 1.3m Fly-Away Terminal. Packing into 2 rugged cases, this innovative terminal can be assembled and operational within minutes! Supporting X, Ku and Ka-Bands, it's tool less, modular design allows you to use transceivers, modems and power supplies from the Tampa family of satcom terminals.
Huge thanks to Thuraya for an invitation to their Partner Conference 2018 in Dubai. Beautiful surroundings and it's always great to see their latest innovations.
A major annoucement at the show was the upcoming release of the Thuraya X5-Touch Satphone - finally a satphone with all the features you've come to expect from a modern smartphone! Touch screen, Android OS, rugged IP67 rating and true dual mode SIM. Scheduled for release later this year, it'll be great to be able to offer our customers a satphone that doesn't look like it was made in the 80's!
With the Orion IP as a terminal option on our SCYTALE Maritime walk-on voice and data solution, it was great to see Thuraya continuing their development for satcom at sea solutions. It was interesting to hear everyone talking about what they felt customer priorities too. Lot's of different suggestions, but given that your life often depends on it, number one was unsurprisingly - reliability.
Overall it was a great, well organised event in an amazing location, made better by Thuraya's honest approach to the presentations and openess to questions and discussion about their technology.
What a difference a day makes... testing on a Connect 100 satcom terminal, completed come rain or shine. Could spring be here at last?
Speed of setup, agility and performance, plus size, weight and power = first orders for the Tampa Microwave Manpack satcom terminals! Chosen specifically for their durability, single man carry and operation, these terminals will be utilised globally, alongside GRC's own SCYTALE solution.
Thank you to Airbus Defence and Space and Inmarsat for a great visit - lots of new ideas, working together to combine our services and deliver the best possible satellite communication capabilities to our customers!
Most of our kit is specifically designed to work in tough environments and some demo’s put that to the test! Despite the rain, wind and mud, we had a great day showing our SCYTALE voice and data solution, along with the ultra-portable Satcube AB satcom terminal. We had a lot of interest in our SCYTALE Maritime, working live on Thuraya Telecom and the GRC ROIP Mission Module, capable of transmitting encrypted radio beyond line of sight.
