GetSAT to Introduce Innovative Ka-Band, Flat-Panel Products to US Market

Based on its InterFLAT Antenna Technology, GetSAT,s Unique Terminals Are a Leap Forward for  Affordable, Portable Access to the High Data Rates Available on Ka-Band Satellites

 Rehovot, Israel, 22 February 2016 , GetSAT, an innovator in miniaturized satellite communication terminals for ground, airborne, and maritime applications, will introduce three flat-panel terminals to the US market at Satellite 2016, 8-10 March 2016 in Washington, DC. Using GetSAT's Ka-band antenna technology, InterFLAT, these new terminals offer significant savings in their size, weight, and power (SWaP) parameters and they provide improved performance, reduced life-cycle costs, and enhanced operational success.

The industry norm for flat-panel systems in this market is to bundle two separate antennas, one transmit (30GHz) and one receive (20 GHz), into a single bulky unit. InterFLAT uses interlace technology to combine the signal transmission and reception onto a single panel. At less than an inch in depth (23mm) InterFLAT offers a very thin, light, and compact antenna that produces 63% efficiency for better performance. InterFLAT antennas are 50% smaller, reduce heating, and lower costs for a more effective alternative to a traditional unit.

Ka-band antennas are technically challenging because the transmit and receive channels operate at different frequencies and are difficult to combine, said Kfir Benjamin, CEO, GetSAT. By designing a unique structure -- a small, very high-efficiency antenna -- we have overcome this hurdle by using interlace technology , making it possible for affordable on-the-move broadband via easy-to-carry manpacks. From soldiers needing battlefield telemetry to first responders requesting triage from a hospital to remote locations inaccessible to vehicles, GetSat provides these lightweight broadband products for global, real-time voice, video, and data.

The SWaP improvements of the smaller panel also lead to a highly integrated unit with smaller and lighter mechanics and smart electronics that reduce out-of-the box components, including the controller, which is miniaturized and built into the antenna. In addition, GetSAT products are modem agnostic and give the customer the choice to use their preferred box.

GetSAT will introduce three transformative products at Satellite 2016.

MicroSAT. A small lightweight portable on-the-move (OTM) terminal that is extremely light at 8.8 lbs. (4 kg) for ground application, and 6.6 lbs. (3 kg) for air applications. Designed for compact installation, it provides fully autonomous operation for transmit and receive of high-bandwidth data rates of up to 10 Mbps.

NanoSAT. At 4.4 lbs. (2 kg) this ultralightweight, low-profile portable is designed for ultracompact installations for hand carried and mobile applications. It provides autonomous operation for transmit and receive of high bandwidth data rates of more than 2 Mbps.

CaseSAT. This small suitcase has all the benefits of the MicroSAT, packed in a briefcase that can be hand carried for quick deployment. Weighing 15.6 lbs. (7 kg), CaseSAT includes the antenna system, block up converter (BUC), and modem and is truly a portable manpack.
