SATCOM Technologies' trailer will highlight Outdoor Booth #202 at the AFCEA 2007 Tactical C4 Conference and Exposition, April 23-25 in Atlanta

General Dynamics' Warrior™ 240T/TMST meets and exceeds the rigorous draft specifications for the Joint Network Node Satellite Transportable Terminal (JNN STT).

Produced by General Dynamics' SATCOM Technologies, the Warrior 240T/Trailer Mounted SATCOM Terminal (TMST) can be configured for either SATCOM or Troposcatter Communications by operating over C, Ku, Ka and X-Band frequencies. It provides transmit and receive data rates up to 155 megabits per second and can be set up in less than 20-minutes.

Chris Buck, Director of Government Programs for SATCOM Technologies, said, "The JNN draft specifications require substantial enhancements to STT performance, communications flexibility and reliability, while keeping the unit's weight to under 4,200 pounds for easy towing by up armored vehicles. The Warrior 240T/TMST meets all of the specifications and exceeds more than 20 of the most demanding requirements including:

  • Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) requirements using Ka-band Wide Band Gap-filler Satellites as well as current commercial Ku-band satellite technology
  • On the Move Connectivity to support the Battle Command and Satcom-on-the-Move capability
  • 3.6.4 STT Acquisition and Tracking in variable wind conditions
  • 3.6.8 Ka/Ku-band Modularity
  • Volume and Weight Growth Management

image"There are several design features that help position the Warrior 240T/TMST as the next generation JNN STT," Buck added.

  • Its adaptive tracking capability allows it to transmit and receive in Ka-band in winds gusting to 60 MPH without the aid of outriggers
  • The Warrior 240T/TMST can interoperate with SOTM terminals using basic spread spectrum network access and even FDMA or TDMA solutions that employ advanced coding techniques
  • It has 9-cubic feet of storage to carry frequency band upgrade kits onboard improving tactical operations
  • Its onboard generator and fuel tank powers the unit at full capacity for more than 24 hours
  • Its reduced weight design, larger equipment enclosure and storage compartments allow for more than a 25% margin for growth of additional traffic-bearing equipment or for operation on alternate frequency bands

The Warrior 240T/TMST will be featured in SATCOM Technologies' Outdoor Booth #202 at the AFCEA 2007 Tactical C4 Conference and Exposition at the Hilton Atlanta Airport Hotel April 23-25.
