IN THE NEWS: (Source - iDirect Government)

"An entire communications system made just for C-130 aircraft. We teamed up with UltiSat, a Speedcast Company, R4 and SelectTech Geospatial to debut a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution for C-130 military transport aircraft.

Behold, the Tactical Removable Airborne Satellite Communications (TRASC) system.

This turnkey solution includes UltiSat's 18-inch parabolic antenna with ideal size, weight and power (SWaP) for military use; a roll-on/roll-off transit case integrated with our 9800 AR Satellite Router, power supply and gateway router; and R4’s C-130 hatch that’s based on a U.S. Air Force- and FAA-approved multi-purpose hatch system.

The entire TRASC system ships together as a bundle and works with various Ka-, Ku- and X-bands or a combination of these to support voice and data for C-130 airborne applications. It’s 100 percent FAA-compliant, works on all C-130 variants and is compatible with existing SATCOM networks that are equipped with iDirectGov hubs."
