ManPack terminals can be configured for single, dual or tri-band operation at time of delivery or through field upgrades. Terminal operators can change frequency bands in the field without tools. The Receiver/Transmitter (R/T) separates from the modem by detaching four finger operable clasps. The second frequency R/T mates with the same modem by a blind mate connector assisted by guide pins.
Tampa Microwave’s 1.3 Meter Fly-Away terminal utilizes the electronic modules that are common to our family of manpack terminals (Receiver / Transmitter, Modem and Power Supply Modules). All SATCOM frequency bands are supported (X, Ku, and Ka-bands). An entire 1.3m single-band terminal can be transported in one or two transit cases that are FAA compliant.
