"If you need a powerful, reliable SSPA or BUC to make your airborne satcom terminal fly -- you need a Falcon!"

Airborne SSPAs

"These amplifiers feature an intuitive user interface that guides a user through whatever they’re trying to achieve.  A person can jump into a screen-based task and know what to do with tabs, menus, and buttons to navigate in orderly steps that make sense to them.  The control is also easy to access remotely via a browser to be pulled up on any connected computer or device at any time. The control software is responsive and delivers immediate results in real-time."

Indoor Touch Screen TWTAs

"Gateway and teleport customers are electing liquid cooling to ease maintenance and save air conditioning expenses. Liquid cooling allows the user to easily remove heat from the amplifiers and dissipate it in a more desirable location. It enables amplifiers to be mounted near the feed without worry about air flow or maintenance."

Liquid Cooled

"If you need a sleek, powerful SSPA or BUC to speed up your transportable terminal -- you need a Puma!"


"If you want the most capable little BUC out there -- you need a Bobcat!"


"Realtime inflight communications has become a necessity If you need a powerful, reliable HPA to make your airborne satcom terminal fly – you need a Falcon!"

Airborne HPAs

The global maritime satellite communication market size is expected to grow from USD 2.3 billion in 2020 to USD 3.2 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.1% during the forecast period. Escalating the need for enriched data communication to improve operation efficiency, on-board security, and surveillance, and employee/passenger welfare in the maritime industry is driving the market. Furthermore, the major factor driving the maritime satellite communication market is the need to attain improved connectivity between the land and sea operations and realizing benefits in faster repair times, preventative maintenance, fuel-saving, and real-time navigation.


"The new LEO-satellite concepts, which orbit 500 to 2,000 kilometers from Earth, offer faster communications (they have lower latency) and often provide higher bandwidth per user than GEO satellites do—even more than cable, copper, and pre-5G fixed wireless."
