The Swarm45 is an extremely compact, rugged, lightweight and unobtrusive system providing high-throughput data rates, making it ideally suited to the government, defence, commercial and disaster recovery sectors.
It is operational on Global Xpress, Avanti and other high-throughput Ka-Band satellites and can also be configured to operate at Ku and X-Band frequencies.
The Swarm45 provides everything needed for straightforward setup and pointing, allowing the user to be operational in less than 5 minutes. Complete with a lowprofile mount, this simple, intuitive and tool-free deployment/setup method involves audio and visual pointing aids and provides an effective method of acquiring the satellite without the extra bulk of motors and controllers. Installation manuals and a quick start guide are supplied with the iDirect X7 which has an integrated X7 modem and provides a graphical user interface for monitor and control to manageable terminal components.
As a single integrated system, the Swarm45 can withstand harsh environmental conditions. It has comparable performance to a 65cm parabolic antenna and can be assembled and operated in half the height making more resilient to wind.
Wet performance is also greatly increased when compared to a parabolic as the signal passes through the antenna only once, reducing rain attenuation. Additionally, the flat panel design sheds water easily and avoids water pooling.
The Swarm45 packs in to a single hard case, which can be carried as airline hand baggage, with other packaging options, including a MOLLE backpack, available.
