Portable Ku-Band Transceiver for AT-S3 (TM) Series Airborne SATCOM

This transceiver is the heart of the AT-S3™ Series. It features compact size and state-of-the-art engineering. Using MMIC based technology, the system provides high performance and exceptional reliability in a single, low cost RF Terminal. Weighing only 29 lbs, the system is completely weatherized and easy to install.

The transceiver comes with a built-in 2 or 4 watt power amplifier. An optional external power booster, up to 16 watts, provides easy transition to higher solid state power.

Standard features include monitor and control (Hand Held Controller or PC interface), digital gain, and temperature compensation.
