Satellite communications are often the only viable way to ensure reliable and uninterrupted broadband connectivity for mobile military platforms. Leveraging our best-of-breed satellite communications technologies, Gilat offers dedicated on-the-move solutions that meet the demanding requirements of military and homeland security operations, as well as emergency response teams.
Gilat’s RaySat ER5000-M is a low-profile, MIL-STD compliant two-way antenna system that enables real-time Ka and Ku-band satellite communications for video, voice and data transfer. Its sturdy structure and small footprint facilitate mounting on a wide range of military vehicles and vessels. Enhanced antenna ruggedness makes the system particularly suitable for operation in harsh environments.
RaySat ER5000-M antennas maximize throughput using high-efficiency waveguide panel technology. They feature multiple onboard tracking sensors, which enable accurate tracking, short initial acquisition and instantaneous re-acquisition after signal loss.
The ER5000-M can be deployed as part of a complete integrated SOTM terminal – consisting of the antenna, a Gilat BUC and Gilat’s military-grade MLT1000 modem – controlled by a unified management system. Integration with Gilat’s special-purpose SOTM modem allows for operation in low SNR conditions. When integrated with 3rd-party modems, the antenna is supplied with an Antenna Control Unit (ACU).
