Rugged, Compact HM300 Successfully Tested over XEBRA Service
In July, Hughes Defense and Intelligence Systems Division (DISD) completed successful operational demonstrations of its HM300 portable terminal. Designed for military applications, the HM300 provides portable X-band communications.

“These tests successfully demonstrate the numerous scenarios of the HM300 terminal’s operational flexibility with the XEBRA service as a reliable, durable and cost-effective communications solution,” said Rick Lober, Vice President & GM DISD. “Its rapid deployment capability makes it an ideal fit for the evolving needs of the military.”
