The Taurus Family consists of ultra-high-performance VSATs for a variety of mobility services used for both commercial and government/defense purposes. Taurus meets the satellite communication needs for multi-orbit constellations and very high throughput satellites (VHTS) and enables the delivery of reliable, high-performance connectivity. Taurus provides secure, seamless connectivity across land, sea and air on C, Ku and Ka bands.
SkyEdge II-c Taurus and SkyEdge IV Taurus are ultra-high-performance modem solutions for a comprehensive broadband IFC solution either as a Modman or a card. Using Taurus, rates of 400Mbps can be achieved, enabling Internet and multimedia applications that support hundreds of airplane passengers.
Taurus Pro is an ultra-high-performance rack-mounted satellite VSAT for land mobility connectivity. It is particularly suited for first responder vehicles equipped with the VSAT to provide communication in times of emergency.
Specifically, for Gilat’s Government and Defense customers, the Taurus-M Series are fast-to-deploy, lightweight and easy-to-operate military modems that meet the most rugged military specifications for manned and unmanned, land and airborne missions. Setting a new standard for mission flexibility, the Taurus-M delivers highly available high-speed satellite communications for on-the-move (SOTM) and stationary operations. It is the smallest modem on the market today which offers these capabilities. The Taurus-M Series is comprised of the following function-specific modems:
– Taurus-M: for land-based, manned operations
– Taurus-M-U: for land-based, unmanned operations
– Taurus-M-A: for aero-based, manned operations
– Taurus-M-A-U: for aero-based, unmanned operations
Taurus multi-purpose VSATs support advanced applications based QoS, VLANs and IPv6 networking. They provide the full feature set for mobility services, incorporating advanced mobility features such as high-speed Doppler compensation, transmit power control with link adaptation and antenna skew compensation with dynamic spread spectrum. Taurus also incorporates true seamless beam switchover, ensuring service continuity. The unique distributed X-Architecture of SkyEdge II-c and the Elastix-Architecture of SkyEdge IV are ideal platforms for switchover between beams, satellites and gateways while maintaining user application sessions.
In addition, Taurus provides the highest level of transmission security, supporting X509 terminal authentication and AES-256-bit link layer encryption with dynamic key rotation to protect all user traffic.
