Teledyne Paradise Datacom Q-Lite Modem selected by GISS

Teledyne Paradise Datacom has announced a strategic integration partnership with GISS, a leading Polish company operating in the aviation and military communications market. The $1.3M contract provides a fully integrated Teledyne Paradise Q-Lite modem for the GISS COBALT Manpack Terminal.

The GISS COBALT Manpack Terminal has been selected by the Polish Armament Agency to provide a combination of SCPC and TDMA secure satellite services to Polish MoD end users. The project contract was issued on February 28th, 2022 and covers implementation between 2022 and 2024. The contract will involve the delivery of portable SHF tactical-level satellite terminals, which will provide reliable, mobile, and territorially unlimited SATCOM access. GISS selected the Teledyne Paradise Datacom Q-Lite satellite modem for its proven ability to reliably deliver high throughput, secure, resilient satellite links, and its robust and compact design.

“For manpack users, small size, low weight and low power use are critical,” said Andrzej Puścian, CEO of GISS. “The compact and rugged design of the Q-Lite and its combination of legacy and state of the art features made it an ideal choice for integration into the COBALT Manpack Terminal allowing us to reliably deliver the mission critical services needed by the Polish MoD’s end users.

“The GISS and Teledyne Paradise Datacom engineering teams have worked in close partnership to achieve an elegant and robust integration of the Q-Lite into the COBALT terminal,” added Paul McConnell, Business Development Director of Teledyne Paradise Datacom. “This close working partnership is critical to delivering an overall package to Armament Inspectorate that not only meets but exceeds the needs of the end user in terms of service delivery and reliability.”
