Avanti Communications Demonstrates Satellite on the Move Capabilities with GetSAT’s MicroSat Terminal

Avanti Communications Group plc (“Avanti”), a leading provider of satellite data communications services in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (“EMEA”), and GetSat, a pioneer in micronised, integrated satellite terminals, has successfully demonstrated the outstanding potential of modern Satellite on the Move (SOTM) capabilities.

During the demonstration, a low SWaP GetSAT MicroSat terminal was installed on a vehicle, and a GetSAT Microhub modem installed in Avanti’s Gateway Earth Station in Cyprus. The demo achieved impressive data traffic rates of up to 8.5Mbps, from a vehicle moving at speed, via Avanti’s HYLAS 2 Ka-band satellite, showcasing Avanti’s network ability to stream live HD-quality video or surveillance imagery and data traffic for military and government users.

The strategic partnership between Avanti and GetSAT offers significant capability enhancements to support military and government organisations in the provision of very small, flexible, agile and portable satellite communications across EMEA. The collaboration will enable military and government users to maximise the benefits of High Throughput Satellite broadband and take full advantage of high capacity data traffic, including full motion video and other C4ISR applications, even when on the move.

Having successfully demonstrated the exceptional throughputs achievable from Avanti and GetSat, both companies will now seek to further develop the capability. The US Army has recently chosen GetSAT’s MicroSat terminal as a critical enabler for mobile satellite connectivity.

Graham Peters, Managing Director of Avanti Government, said “The partnership between Avanti’s High Throughput Ka-band technology and GetSAT’s ground-breaking Satellite on the Move technology provides a capability that has enormous potential for military and Government users. We are proud to be working with GetSAT and look forward to collaboratively supporting our Government and Military customers.”

Kfir Benjamin, Chief Executive Officer of GetSAT, said “Avanti’s Ka-band satellite broadband has allowed us to fully demonstrate the capability of the GetSAT technology. We are extremely proud of the equipment we have created, and it is therefore extremely important to be able to find a carrier that allows us to fully maximise its potential. The combination of GetSAT at and Avanti will add real depth and much higher capacities to our existing offerings and allow us to support the needs of our users for high data C4ISR traffic in remote locations and while on the move.”
