Model 20-24M Satcom-on-the-Move™ Terminal
General Dynamics' Model 20-24 series SOTM terminals provide high data rate, reliable X, Ku, or Ka Mil and Commercial band satellite communications while on-the-move over a wide range of operational conditions, and can be ordered with an Inertial Measurement Unit. The modular design of the terminal allows it to be customized to meet specific customer requirements.
All General Dynamics SOTM products share a legacy of proven, reliable performance on aircraft, ships, fast boats and a variety of military wheeled and tracked vehicles, including HMMWV, Bradley and Stryker and a variety of commercial vehicles. The Model 20 terminals share a common technology base, common components, and a common user interface with the other products in the General Dynamics SOTM family (Models 13, 17 and 24).

ModuMAX GaN SSPA Systems Ku-Band
A revolutionary concept in solid-state power amplifiers, SATCOM Technologies' ModuMAX series eliminates the need for a spare power amplifier or for redundant switchover networks in many satellite earth station applications.
ModuMAX SSPAs using Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based amplifiers are completely modular RF amplifier systems offering output power of up to 3 kilowatts in Ku-Band. Patented technology utilizes hot-swappable, plug-in RF modules, power supplies, and electronic assemblies to maximize performance and minimize downtime in SATCOM systems. An advanced interface and control system allows unprecedented remote access and operation.

3.8 Meter Dual Offset Antenna
The General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies 3.8-meter antenna delivers exceptional performance for transmit/ receive and receive only applications in L through Ka-band frequencies. This antenna offers a dual offset reflector design that incorporates precision-formed panels, contoured radials and a machined hub assembly. The state-of-the-art design provides exceptional performance for low cross-polarization levels and excellent sidelobe patterns. The rugged feed boom can support up to 300 lbs. (136 kg) of integration equipment.
The reflector is supported by a galvanized steel fixed or motorized pedestal that provides the required stiffness for pointing and tracking accuracy. The pedestals are designed for full orbital arc coverage and are readily adaptable to ground or rooftop installations using concrete foundations, load-frames or non-penetrating mounts. The electrical performance is compliant with FCC 25.209 regulations and ITU-RS-580 sidelobe specifications. Type Approved configurations are available for Intelsat (F1, E2), Eutelsat (L, M), AsiaSat, Europe Star and Singapore Telecom.

Model 950 Controller
SATCOM Technologies' Model 950 Control Systems can be used with almost any limited motion antenna for precision satellite tracking applications.
The system comprises an Antenna Control Unit (ACU), Tracking Receiver Unit (TRU) and a Power Drive Unit (PDU) which are linked via dedicated Ethernet connections. This provides flexibility in locating the key system components, allows for variable separation distances and provides immunity to electrical ground plane transients.
