Paradigm has announced that the firm’s range of portable, simple-to-use and field-proven satellite terminals are available for European Defence Agency (EDA) members to purchase under the new EU SatCom Market contract.
Communication is vital in European civil and military peacekeeping and security missions, and Paradigm terminals continue to play a key role in supporting the satellite communication needs of the EDA’s 20 defence ministries.
At the heart of every Paradigm satellite terminals is the rugged and field-proven PIM – Paradigm Interface Module. The PIM provides a simple, easy to use operational interface ensuring rapid setup and simple terminal configuration and management. Tried, tested and in use by military and government units on every continent, it’s a universal solution for successful and repeated satellite terminal deployments.
Simplifying terminal operation reduces operating costs and provides a central unit for the integration and operation of satellite terminal hardware. It’s the reason Paradigm terminals are available for the EDA. As well as making pointing simple for any user, PIM-based terminals all have excellent SWaP characteristics and operational agility.
The PIM provides a multitude of services to the end user – from simplified pointing and modem configuration to VLAN setup and management, smart auto-selecting of AC and DC power interfaces, and much more. Paradigm terminals are all IATA compliant, and range from the ultra portable ‘broadband in a backpack’ SWARM that is airline hand-carry on and ideal for rapid deployment, to the compact and rugged, quick deploy single-case HORNET that provides the perfect balance of portability and high bandwidth, and including the tough, resilient CONNECT terminal that brings maximum value for a longer term deployment.
With the EU SatCom Market contract, Paradigm PIM-based terminals are now available for all EDA members, making SATCOM simple across the EU civil and military peacekeeping realm.
Ulf Sandberg, Managing Director at Paradigm, commented, “The inclusion of Paradigm’s terminals on the EU SatCom Market framework contract is an excellent step forward. It will make it easier than ever for the EU defence ministries to procure and deploy our unique range of portable terminals for use in civil and military peacekeeping and security missions.”
