Cobham Satcom Unveils Tactical TRACKER Range of Transportable Tracking Terminals

Defense industry’s first fully multi-orbit tactical terminals enable switching between GEO, MEO and LEO satellite constellations, offering unrivalled capabilities and resilience

Concord, CA, 17 March 2022 – Cobham Satcom, a leading global provider of land and maritime satellite communications solutions to the Government and Enterprise sectors, has today announced the launch of its ground-breaking new Tactical TRACKER antenna range.

The new terminals are available in three sizes and are the first MIL-STD antennas to fully support multi-orbit tracking across GEO, MEO and LEO satellites. Combining highly accurate multi-orbit tracking capabilities with a rugged, lightweight, and robust design, the new terminals provide unmatched deployment flexibility and a future-ready terminal for ultra-resilient battlefield communications.

The tracking terminals are easy to operate, fast to deploy and quick to connect – going from box to operational in less than 30 minutes. A tool-free assembly and set-up further streamlines the process. This rapid deployment and connection time allows users to be prepared in mission-critical scenarios, where every second counts.

“Innovation is at the core of Cobham Satcom, so we’re proud to be able to announce the first transportable terminals featuring full multi-orbit tracking capabilities” noted Kevin McMahon, Director of Sales for Government and Defense Solutions. “New LEO and MEO constellations will transform tactical operations, so it’s vital to have future-ready terminals that can leverage these constellations and help our users maintain their communications advantage.”

The Tactical TRACKER antennas will be officially unveiled at the Satellite 2022 show in Washington DC from March 22nd-24th
