These antenna systems, C-COM says, will point to any programmed Ku, Ka or X band satellite with just the push of a button on the new iNetVu 8020 Controller.

With a multi-segment carbon fibre dish, they are said to be capable of being hand-carried by one person and assembled in less than 10 minutes with no tools required.

There are currently six models in production, in sizes of 60cms, 80cms and 1m in either manual or motorised versions.

The company says it has just received orders of approximately $4.0 million for its flyaway and manpack systems.

Drew Klein, vice president of C-COM, said: “The rapid confirmation of our latest technological development - a single case, carbon fibre, auto-pointing backpack system that can be carried by one person and finds a satellite in less than a minute just by pressing a button - is validated by large orders like these. The company continues to innovate and modernise the mobile satcom business by offering the highest quality products coupled with the best customer support available in the market today.”

C-COM is exhibiting at IBC2019 on Stand 5.C55.
