KT SAT, PINETELECOM and Get SAT Establish New Era for Mobile SatCom ISR

November 9, 2020
Seoul – 9 November 2020: KT SAT, operator of the communication satellite fleet, PINETELECOM, an integrated communication solutions company and Get SAT, an innovator in small, lightweight satellite communication terminals for airborne, ground, and maritime applications, today announced that using KoreaSAT-6’s Ku-band  beams and Get SAT’s miniaturized Milli-SAT SatCom terminal, they have successfully tested and demonstrated full mobile broadband SatCom capabilities for ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) applications. Enabled by KoreaSAT-6’s powerful Ku-band beams and extremely small terminals, the team created a small footprint, high capacity true tactical solution for deployed units.

Get SAT's micronized efficient Milli-SAT terminal demonstrated a return channel of over 8Mbps, hence offering breakthrough SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) for broadband communications required by various ISR sensors. By this offering, Ku-band hub and the powerful capabilities of KoreaSAT-6’s payload, the team created an ideal configuration for Communications On-The-Move applications in Asia.

According to Rony Kohen, CEO of PINETELECOM, “this collaboration with KT SAT, Get SAT and PINETELECOM, brings newly opportunities to the Korean market and Asia. The Milli SAT terminal, is easy for integration, hence suitable for Airborne, land and maritime applications with very small footprint on the platform. We believe that together with KT SAT’s fleet of communication satellite, we offer new possibilities for different types of platforms, enabling diversity of operations.”

Kfir Benjamin, Get SAT CEO stated, “This news is incredible for a market that is starved for secure, nimble, mobile ISR. Get SAT’s SWaP goes above and beyond current offerings. With KT SAT’s Ku-band HTS beams, PINETELECOM technical capabilities and Get SAT’s miniaturized terminals we can produce extremely effective transmission and reception via a single small antenna. No longer does one have to seek miniaturized terminals for secure and reliable high data rates for tactical units using mobile platforms: They are available here.”

According to Byeongho Kim, Director of Business at KT SAT, “The test’s results demonstrate how KoreaSAT-6’s payload performance, advanced flexible processor platform and optimal location add value and open new opportunities for mobile ISR users. Get SAT’s micronized terminals are changing the mobile broadband communications landscape. When coupled with KoreaSAT-6, and PINETELECOM technical and integration capabilities, we bring new vectors of flexibility and possibilities to commercial and government markets, while opening new markets.”

Get SAT offers highly versatile, mobile solutions for applications requiring small terminals. Based on its patented InterFLAT panel antenna, a miniaturized interlaced antenna combining both receive and transmit elements on one panel, and fast-tracking technologies, its micronized terminals establish a new generation of standards for lightweight, small-sized and low power consumption communication devices for on-the-move applications.

KoreaSAT-6’s digital payload capabilities offer extensive coverage, regional Ku-band and steerable Ka-band HTS beams that can be combined to maximize throughput and efficiency. Its unique payload offers secure and resilient SatCom solutions over major areas of interest.

Come see KT SAT (booth #E109) at the Korea Ocean Expo 2020, in Songdo ConvensiA, Incheon, 11-13 November.
