C-COM antenna tracks NSLComm LEO satellite
C-COM Satellite Systems Inc., the world’s leading provider of commercial grade auto-acquire mobile satellite antennas, announced today its successful integration of its 74cm Flyaway antenna system with NSLComm’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) nanosatellite. NSLComm is an Israel based pioneering nanosatellite telecommunications company that launched the first Gigabit per second Ka-band satellite into orbit in July of this year.
This uniquely successful test completes a significant development project between the two companies. It will open new markets and create new opportunities for both companies.
C-COM’s engineering team developed the NSL ground station demonstrator terminals along with the required tracking software to NSLComm specifications, using the renowned iNetVu® 7700 series controllers. NSLComm provided access to their powerful Ka-band LEO nanosatellite and assisted with daily testing.
The iNetVu® FLY-74 is C-COM's newly developed 74cm, fully automatic, motorized Ka-band flyaway product. This family of antenna systems is highly portable and the choice for various industries such as Oil & Gas, Exploration, Emergency Response, Military Communications, Cellular Backhaul, Satellite News Gathering, and many other vertical markets.
