satellite airforceHughes Network Systems, Klas TelecomGetSAT and NexTech Solutions have collaborated to demonstrate a mobile satellite communications platform for voice, data and video connectivity.

The integrated communications-on-the move satcom technology worked to facilitate high-definition video call among six participants located in different locations when the system was mounted on a sports utility vehicle as well as on a U.S. Navy watercraft during tests conducted June 28 and 29 in Virginia, Klas Telecom said Tuesday.

“Both the land and maritime vehicles were maneuvering at top speeds,“ said Louis Pacheco, NTS director of engineering.

The COTM system is comprised of a Klas Telecom-made Voyager 8 baseband kit that runs the Acano video collaboration software, a Sonus VX voice gateway and a Riverbed-built Virtual Steelhead appliance for data bandwidth management.

The demonstration team attached a GetSAT-built Micro Satellite antenna to the roof of the SUV and onboard the ship.

Hughes provided Internet connection for the demonstration through a 5.9-foot satellite dish and HM100 modem.
