Elbit Systems launches Elsat 2100
Elbit Systems launched Elsat 2100, a new satellite-on-the-move ( SOTM) terminal. It is an 80 cm diameter low profile rugged bi-directional military satellite communications ( MILSATCOM) vehicular SOTM antenna with outstanding characteristics.
Based on a new generation planar antenna technology developed for high performance and efficiency of low profile SOTM antennas, the Elsat 2100 delivers a six-fold performance improvement over the Elsat 2000, enabling 50 mbps downlink and 10 mbps uplink speeds.
The system features an advanced triple tracking mechanism based on a combination of Gyro, GPS and RSSI (receive signal strength indication), with a 110 degrees elevation capability for superior SOTM tracking and relocking.
The system features a Tx-Gain of 33.4 dbi, and Rx-Gain of 33 dbi, and a G/T of 12 dB/k (including Radom loss), with an ideal radiation pattern of -14 dbw/4 kHz. It also delivers outstanding SOTM performance as well as superior efficiency resulting in substantial bandwidth cost efficiency.
