Available with a 65 or 95cm antenna, major system components have been modularised into field separable parts, with the receiver / transmitter, modem and power modules common to all models, allowing for simple upgrades and maintenance.

This also allows terminals to be configured for X, Ku (co-pol and cross-pol) and Ka band operation, offering a flexible, futureproof satcom solution.

With no fans, or filters, the ManPack’s system architecture eliminates the need for forced air cooling further enhancing reliability and operating time in the field. Packaging options include small backpacks, a single, commercial aircraft compliant overhead hard case and soft side rollaboard luggage.
