Cost-Effective and Low Size Weight and Power (SWAP) Integrated Design Enables Voice/Data/Video Applications for Unmanned Platforms Operating in the Air, Sea or Ground

PETAH TIKVA, Israel - Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq:GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced today the availability of BlackRay 300, BlackRay P60 and BlackRay Marine 250 which are part of its BlackRay suite of terminals specifically designed for operations on unmanned platforms.
