Full featured, Quick Deploy SATCOM Terminal Sets Up In Minutes

General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies has introduced the newest member of its Warrior family of Satellite Communications Terminals: the Warrior SMT (Small Man-portable Terminal). The terminals are being showcased at major communications conferences including Modern Day Marine and AUSA.

Powered by SmartSAT Technology™ - a new, software-defined 'smart' positioner for simple and fast satellite acquisition, the Warrior SMT is the easiest full-featured SATCOM Terminal to field.

The complete terminal weighs just 75 lbs (34Kg) and is transportable in either two backpacks (at 6 lbs/2.7 kg each) , or one lightweight transit case (13 lbs/5.8 kg). The Warrior SMT provides secure or non-secure communications over Ku-band (Ka and X-band available) and is fully equipped to handle high speed data transmissions.

Control of the Warrior SMT is PC-based (laptop, microPC or handheld PC) providing rapid setup, control and monitoring of the terminal via Graphical User Interface (GUI) screens. In addition, the Warrior SMT features an integrated spectrum analyzer, terminal controller and built-in diagnostics.  The terminal can be operated from common AC or DC power sources (land line, battery or vehicle). 

Capable of transmitting data rates greater than 4.0Mbps and receiving data at 18.0Mbps, the Warrior SMT can support tactical communications applications ranging from real time video to the transmission and reception of large data files. Because it can access any IP-Network for which it is authorized, Warrior SMT is ideally suited to support Network Centric Operations.

Gary Kanipe, Vice President and General Manager of SATCOM Technologies, said, "The new Warrior SMT terminals are distinguished by their high level feature set which includes an embedded modem, integrated electronics and interconnections, simple satellite auto-acquisition and the fastest setup time in the industry - under five minutes."

The SMT can easily be reconfigured in the field to use high performance apertures from .96 to 1.2 Meters in axis symmetric or prime focus offset configurations over X, Ku or Ka-band frequencies. These interchangeable communications payloads make the SMT the most flexible SATCOM terminal available," Kanipe added.
