Powered by the JUPITER™ System, this versatile terminal can be quickly set up in the most demanding environments—such as following a natural disaster. As a turnkey SATCOM solution, it is easily transported and assembled and has a self-pointing antenna to lock on to a satellite within minutes, requiring only one trained person who does not need extensive satellite knowledge or expertise.
