EM SOLUTIONS’ TERMINAL FAMILY Designed initially for the Australian Defence Force to operate at Ka-band on WGS satellites, and subsequently tailored for civilian use in emergency services applications, EM Solutions’ Taipan satellite terminals affordably combine robust, resilient design and MIL-STD quality with a state of the art antenna feed for operation on either military or commercial Ka-band.
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.
