Paradigm making satcom simple at Satellite 2020

Paradigm's PIM-enabled Terminals

This year at Satellite 2020, Paradigm will be showcasing their latest PIM®-enabled, simple-to-use satellite terminals covering off all band options and all throughput requirements. Terminals include the MANTA®, the HORNET and the SWARM®.

All of the terminals integrate the rugged and field-proven PIM (Paradigm Interface Module) which allows any non-skilled user to point antennas in a few minutes. As a fully self-contained unit, the PIM then enables you to plug-in and connect peripheral devices as required. The latest, optimised HORNET satcom terminal is a modular solution, allowing you to easily interchange between different sized antennas, RF modules and frequency bands. This increases the flexibility and efficiency of the terminal by providing you with the optimum solution for every requirement. Crucially, it is lightweight and can still be packed into a single IATA compliant case or a backpack.

The MANTA operates straight ‘out-of-the-box’ for simple Deploy & Go satcoms or can be quickly fitted to any vehicle (land or sea) for comms-on-the-move. It is the complete solution for ‘anywhere’ IP data connectivity via Wi-Fi and Ethernet – just by adding power. There is no need for any setup or pointing, it uses software beam forming for satellite acquisition and tracking – satcom made simple.

The MANTA+ offers even further enhanced capabilities over the standard MANTA by utilising its fully integrated 3G/4G/LTE cellular and radio connectivity to produce an outstandingly flexible terminal that is always connected, seamlessly switching between terrestrial and satellite networks to best suit your needs.

The backpackable SWARM is small and light enough to be carried as hand luggage on commercial airlines yet still delivers impressively high data rates. It can be assembled in 90 seconds and have you on air in less than 4 minutes.

The PIM now operates in many different market sectors across 5 continents. It can work with any air interface to provide a common pointing experience across a whole range of manufacturers’ terminals. The PIM integrates into all the major satellite networks as well as a wide range of modems, supporting the major types from iDirect, Newtec, UHP, Comtech and Teledyne Paradise amongst others.

At Satellite 2020, videos of all Paradigm’s PIM-enabled terminals will be available to view on our stand (1158) with various terminals available for you to be hands-on with.

Ongoing booth activities will include demonstrations of the straightforward operation of the PIM. You will be able to experience how easily the onboard visual and optional audio cues guide you during the pointing process for Paradigm’s flyaway terminals.
