EM Solutions Cobra satellite terminals providing assured communications for Australian Navy

 7 August 2017: 


Less than 6 months after the first proto-type terminal underwent initial sea trials, EM Solutions has delivered and installed its Cobra X/Ka tri-band Maritime Terminals on two recently launched Australian Navy Cape Class Vessels that are now in service.

The Cobra tri-band terminal supports four connected modems, enables simultaneous communication at X and Ka Bands, provides services on both military and commercial Ka Band satellites and is in the final stages of certification for the WGS and Inmarsat GX networks. This flexibility in service provision and the unique monopulse tracking technology used by EM Solutions, which maximizes the ability of the terminal to maintain satellite lock under the most extreme conditions, is a significant step forward in meeting customer expectations of assured broadband communications at sea.

EM Solutions CEO, Rowan Gilmore is a passionate supporter of Australian SME involvement in the provision of Defence capability.

“Cobra is world leading innovative technology that is fully designed, manufactured and supported in Australia. Initially seeded under a CTD program, we commend Navy on taking the next step in sponsoring WGS certification and commercially deploying this product on their Cape Class Vessels.”, he said.

EM Solutions is expanding its production capability for its satellite-on-the-move terminals to support increased demand across both the land and maritime sectors with a specific focus on interoperability and assuredness for both government and military applications.”
