The DEKA150F/100 FlyAwaySat, being showcased on the Actia stand, is a transportable satellite terminal designed to provide high data rate communications in Ka band anywhere.
The terminal can be deployed in 30 minutes by two people, and is powered either from the mains or via a power generator. The electronics are integrated into air-conditioned boxes to allow deployment under the most severe operational constraints and transportation via road, rail, air or sea.
The unit can operate in extremes of temperature – from -20°C to +50°C – and in wind gusts of up to 72km/hour. It can survive winds of 128km/hour.
The antenna tripod is designed to be equipped with two amplifiers installed closer to the feed without constraining the azimuth or elevation motion. This design, said Actia, allows dual band simultaneous X-Ka configuration or 1+1 redundancy configuration when high availability is required.
Options for the unit include an optical link; multi-band (X, Ku and Ka); automatic pointing; and motorisation and tracking.
