Paradigm’s Hornet man-portable satellite terminals have been successfully accredited for use on Avanti Communications’ fleet of satellites. Avanti said its connectivity paired with Paradigm’s rapidly deployable and rugged terminals will provide a communications package suited to early-entry or first-responder missions.
With Avanti satellite connectivity over Paradigm’s Hornet terminals, users will be able to get fully connected in minutes.
Avanti owns and operates a number of high throughput Ka-band satellites, providing high-capacity connectivity across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Paradigm’s Hornet, is an easy to use interface which controls the terminals’ baseband switching, pointing and setup functions. By using a common core such as this with a range of field changeable modules, users can scale their requirements from small to medium-sized operations without changing terminals.
Ulf Sandberg, Managing Director of Paradigm, said: “The HORNET is a powerful terminal, simple to use and able to handle impressively high throughput. We are delighted to be qualified on Avanti’s high capacity network, which will allow users to operate the terminals at their full potential.”
Donald Walker, Director of Government Sales at Avanti Communications, added: “Avanti and Paradigm have a well-proven pedigree of operational success and service. This experience is brought together in the HORNET man-portable terminals, to provide battle-winning capabilities wherever and whenever they are required.”
