Orbit Communications Systems, an Israeli provider of maritime and airborne SatCom terminals, tracking ground station solutions, and mission-critical airborne audio management systems, announced last week that it will supply OceanTRx4 Mil satellite communications systems for the Israeli Navy’s new Saar 6-class corvettes, the company announced.
It is the first time for the Navy to acquire satcom systems from Orbit.
“We are proud that the Israeli Navy has chosen the OceanTRx4 Mil Platform for Saar 6 class corvettes,” said Daniel Eshchar, CEO of Orbit. “This platform is one of the most advanced naval satellite communication solutions in the world. The platform supports both military and civilian bands on a single military system.”
Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems recently delivered the second Saar 6 class corvette, INS Oz, to the Israeli Navy.
The OceanTRx 4 Mil is a maritime satcom terminal based on the company’s OceanTRx4 platform but with advanced military features. The system designed for maritime platforms supports a variety of configurations of 1.15-meter diameter antenna systems, operating different frequencies including simultaneous operation of a variety of frequencies for global operation.
Supporting the mission- and business-critical broadband needs of navy vessels, commercial and container ships, offshore drilling platforms and large yachts, it was designed for fast one-day deployment, simple updates and minimal maintenance. Orbit’s maritime platform provides outstanding performance and high reliability, maximizing throughput and availability.
The OceanTRx 4 Mil system is designed for quick and convenient installation, maintenance and upgrade, combining RF performance and exceptional system availability for security customers, according to Orbit.
