Lite Coms LLC recently received new orders for VSAT terminals and the company’s Tactical Modem Assembly (TMA) for delivery to users in Columbus, Georgia.
The Carbon Fiber antenna was selected for performance and small, total volume. The antenna will be used with the Lite Coms TMA. This advanced Tactical Modem has an integrated iDirect 850 satellite modem and is the smallest, lightest, tactical packaging of this modem on the market. The Lite Sat TMA-950-T has a feature rich LCD display, multiple data ports as well as Ethernet and serial control ports.
Lite Coms works to achieve the best physical layout and a Human Machine Interface (HMI) on the market. The company’s goal is to ensure that their products provide both Comms Operators and General Purpose Users a simple, yet feature rich, experience. The Lite Sat TMA-950-T is also integrated into the Lite Coms 1.3 and 2.2 meter auto squire terminals.
Bob Jacobson, the President and CEO of the company, said the growing confidence the user community is showing in the offerings of Lite Coms is exciting. The company has customers around the globe coming to us to deliver higher throughput, innovative packaging and a more efficient user experience. Lite Comms manages to do this work in a fraction of the time of the competition.
Additionally, the company has engaged in a partnership with AvL Technologies, Mission Microwave, Orbital Research and iDirect Government as the firm continues to modernize their VSAT offerings.
The AN/TCSA-248 family of terminals are comprised of an integrated Lite Sat 1.3 meter Auto Acquire terminal with the Lite Sat Tactical Modem Assembly (TMA) that features the iDirect 950 satellite modem. LNB’s from Orbital and the Lite Coms Wide Band Custom Ku- LNB and SSPAs from Mission Microwave are integrated in this product into a light weight, rapid set up, small pack-out system with an optional, user-friendly GUI.
Mr. Jacobson stated that this highly transportable terminal packs smaller than many sub-one meters, assembles in minutes and delivers incredible performance and throughput at a highly competitive price. The product is the result of countless hours spent with customers whose input strongly influenced the final design and configuration.
