Norsat, a Canada-based satellite communications company, is happy to announce that it has launched its new and improved fly-away satellite terminal GLOBETrekker 2.0 — a lighter, multi-band capable terminal that takes lesser time to deploy and boasts of more features than its forerunner.
The upgraded satellite terminal now features a one-touch user interface and offers a tool-free assembly process for fast deployment. Moreover, it has a removable base unit that enables the modem and key electronics to be removed and positioned indoors, or integrated with the terminal. It also features the auto-acquire technology provided by Norsat’s LinkControl Software. The user-configured profiles of the system enables operators to quickly shift satellites, equipment, or systems in the field.
GLOBETrekker 2.0 also includes a USB recovery process that saves a full system image for configuration storage, disaster recovery and security if it is deemed essential. A new sunlight readable display is also available that allows visibility in direct sunlight.
At the moment, the GLOBETrekker is undergoing Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) certification to enable operation on the ten satellite WGS constellation so that it can be used by the U.S and other WGS-enabled military forces.
