EM SOLUTIONS’ TERMINAL FAMILY
Designed initially for the Australian Defence Force at X and Ka band, the Salamander terminal operates at Ku band and is suitable for civilian use in emergency services applications. EM Solutions’ Salamander satellite terminals affordably combine robust, resilient design and MIL-STD quality with a state of the art antenna feed.
INCREASED SYSTEM AVAILABILITY
Increased system availability due to best-in-class pointing accuracy, a result of using closed-loop beacon signal processing and tracking. The terminal’s proprietary monopulse pointing system minimises the pointing error to near-zero, which preserves the link budget and improves performance on marginal links.
QUICKEST RE-ACQUIRE TIME
Quickest re-acquire time after obstruction, due to use of an innovative gyro-lock mode that predicts satellite direction during signal loss and readies the unit for immediate operation after the antenna clears the obstruction.
CONTINUOUS COVERAGE OVER ALL RANGES OF MOTION
The terminal has a three-axis gimbal mount system, eliminating keyhole effect and sync losses when the satellite is close to overhead. Other systems struggle to rotate quickly enough to maintain pointing.
REDUCED MAINTENANCE AND POWER CONSUMPTION
Reduced maintenance and power consumption due to the use of high life, sealed brushless motors, and the balanced inertial system mass that minimises internal movement of the antenna and reduces power consumption to a mere few watts over the Block Up Converter(s) fitted.
