For 40 years, the satellite VSAT terminal has been based on the parabolic dish. China Starwin, however, has introduced uSAT, a satellite flat terminal that it claimed will deliver high performance for satellite broadband access.
The company described it as ‘lightweight, small size, highly reliable and easy to point’.
The uSat flat terminal integrates a light and thin high gain Ku or Ka Band flat array antenna panel, the Ku or Ka band BUC module and LNB, and a satellite router from Hughes, ViaSat, iDirect, Gilat or others.
The BUC, LNB, router and power supply unit are mounted in the antenna panel and sealed by a metal shield.
The electrical performance of the flat array antenna is compliant with FCC and ITU sidelobe specifications and the requirements of Intelsat, Eutelsat, SES, AsiaSat, ChinaSat and others.
