Orbit to Expand Multi-Purpose Airborne Satcom Terminal Development to Include Helicopters

Orbit to Expand Multi-Purpose Airborne Satcom Terminal Development to Include Helicopters


Orbit International, August 14, 2017 - NETANYA, Israel - Orbit Communications Systems Ltd announced today that it intends to expand the development of its new Multi-Purpose Terminal (MPT) for airborne satcom to include helicopters.

The company received an order for approximately US$3 million from a global provider of defense products and services for the delivery of helicopter systems to a leading air force between 2018 and 2022.

Built to military standard (MIL-STD), the 30-cm antenna (MPT30) will deliver data communications via satellite to a wide range of military helicopters. The system was designed to overcome the many challenges posed by helicopter installations, such as constant vibration and the need for a self-cooling mechanism when placed behind the exhaust systems.

"Our decision to extend the development of our Multi-Purpose Terminals to helicopters was prompted by market demand," explained Eitan Livneh, CEO of Orbit. "Time to market is a key factor and our ability to tailor our technology to customer needs is proving to be a very attractive and marketable commodity."

Orbit's 30-cm Multi-Purpose Terminal (MPT30) delivers Internet-based data communications via satellite to helicopters. Built to military standard (MIL-STD), the MPT30 features minimal Size, Weight and Power consumption (SWaP). The ultra-compact and cost-effective terminal has been ruggedized to overcome the many challenges posed by helicopter installations, including constant vibration and the need for a self-cooling mechanism when placed behind the exhaust systems.

(TASE: ORBI) is wholly-focused on precision tracking-based communications - in the areas of satcom, telemetry and remote sensing - and provides an innovative solution for airborne audio management.
