[Via Satellite 02-19-2016] U.K.-based Paradigm has unveiled a new flat-panel terminal for military, broadcast, government and disaster recovery sectors.
The Swarm45 terminal provides high data rate communications from any high-throughput Ka-band satellite. The portable terminal has a total weight of 14.5kg (32lbs), conforming to International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations with packaging.
Designed around the Paradigm Interface Module (PIM) terminal controller, the Swarm45 enables setup and pointing for operations in less than 5 minutes. The PIM has an integrated modem, and integrated audio and visual pointing aids that provide an effective method of acquiring the satellite without the extra bulk of motors and controllers.
“With the Swarm45, we are providing the high data rates of [Very Small Aperture Terminal] VSAT with the same portability and simplicity of [Broadband Global Area Network] BGAN,” said Warren Ackerley, business development director at Paradigm.
