SWE-DISH Expands Portable Satellite Terminal Line with Cost-Effective, User-Friendly FA120KS Fly-Away

SWE-DISH Satellite Systems AB Launches Affordable, Rugged, Easy-to-Operate 1.2-Meter Fly-Away Terminal with Multiband Capability

STOCKHOLM, March 10 /-- SWE-DISH Satellite Systems AB, a DataPath company specializing in compact, quick-to-air and easy-to-use mobile satellite communications equipment, is expanding its innovative line of products with the availability of the FA120KS Fly-Away terminal. The FA120KS combines ease-of-use and portability in a system that can be set-up and used by non-technical military personnel, commercial news broadcasters, and first responders to deliver reliable, high-bandwidth voice, video and data communications. The satellite communications terminal is designed to meet demanding mission-critical requirements, and it features worldwide Ku band capability with X and Ka band upgradeability.

Designed with a focus on easy operation for the user, the FA120KS has a step-by-step intuitive PC graphical user interface to guide the operator through the steps of deployment, communication and stowing. There are no tools required during assembly or deployment, and the terminal has a one-button start that initiates automatic point-and-shoot satellite acquisition using the inbuilt GPS receiver, compass and inclinometer. This easy operation allows the user to focus on their task and mission instead of managing their communications equipment.

The fly-away antenna delivers excellent antenna performance due to the unique shape of the elliptical main and subreflector. This design enables low sidelobes and provides high gain and cross-polarization discrimination without compromising on the compactness and low profile of the antenna.

The FA120KS is constructed with rugged material and has been rigorously tested to withstand harsh military combat environments as well as demanding satellite news gathering situations. The system meets the full requirements for U.S. military Combat Service Support and MIL-STD-810F environments. In addition, it fully complies with Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Intelsat, Eutelsat and International Telecommunication Union (ITU) standards.

Lars Jehrlander, CEO of SWE-DISH Satellite Systems, said, "At SWE-DISH, the ease-of-use, portability, and reliability of our products have always been cornerstones of our development and marketing strategies. The development path of our suitcase-sized satellite terminals continues to focus on excellent antenna performance, high-end engineering and user-friendly design elements."
