New this year:

General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies is demonstrating its new Portable Vehicle Mounted (Model PVM24) satellite communications terminal at SATELLITE 2010.

The PVM24 terminal uses instant On-the-Halt technology derived from SATCOM Technologies’ successful SATCOM-on-the-Move™ (SOTM) product family.

The Model PVM24 Portable Vehicle Mounted terminal is designed for full FCC compliance when At-the-Halt as well as in motion. To achieve this, the terminal automatically detects when it is about to exceed the FCC transmit profile and mutes transmission until it senses improving conditions, re-establishing communications automatically.

The compact PVM 24 terminal’s interchangeable X, Ku and Ka radio frequency payloads provide maximum operational flexibility, while its lightweight, low profile design makes it easily adaptable to a variety of commercial and military wheeled and tracked vehicles.
