ACTIA Telecom to promote ground stations at CABSAT

ACTIA TakeAwaySat is available in Ka- and Ku- band and optimised to be easily transportable by road, air, sea and rail. The gateway is fully integrated on an ISO 20 feet platform which can be loaded/unloaded on a trailer

This year, ACTIA Telecom is going to highlight its turn-key ground satcom solutions and services at CABSAT. It will showcase three new Ka-band ground station solutions: TravelSat, TakeAwaySat and On the Move.

ACTIA Telecom’s TravelSat in Ka-band is easily deployable (less than 10 minutes), weighs less than 32kg, which means it can be transported by one person, and is IATA suitcase-compliant thanks to its compact size (480mm x 520mm x 880mm). With a 65cm dual-offset antenna, the 4-petal reflector is mounted on a rigid positioner. Baseband electronics is hosted in a IP65 convection-cooled aluminum case.

TakeAway going mobile is designed for severe environmental constraints. ACTIA TakeAwaySat is available in Ka- and Ku- band and optimised to be easily transportable by road, air, sea and rail. The gateway is fully integrated on an ISO 20 feet platform which can be loaded/unloaded on a trailer. The gateway is equipped with shelter structure, redundant air conditioning system and an 18kVA diesel generator on platform with a large tank allowing 12-hour operation without refuelling.

A new ACTIA Telecom product this year is definitely the company’s MobilSat On-The-Move, which is all European-made (no ITAR/EAR restrictions). With a small SWAP footprint and a low-profile antenna design, the ACTIA Telecom antenna allows low heat dissipation and low power consumption.

“CABSAT is probably the most important show for us. First, CABSAT is the scene of the latest technologies in telecoms, attracting in one place the key actors of our worldwide market. MENA is the region where we expect the highest business perspectives for our company in the coming years,” said Henri Boudet, Sales Manager, ACTIA Telecom.
