Satellite specialist Newtec's IP traffic enhancement and shaping technology Cross-Layer-Optimization™ has been implemented to secure the downlink via satellite in the flagship Euro Hawk® Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) which detects and collects information.
In what could be considered a 'world record' Newtec has demonstrated a 310 Mbps transport over a 36 Mhz transponder. Tests and validations were carried out using existing antennae and power infrastructure on Yahsat’s Y1A.
Newtec has successfully tested its new high speed Ka-Band technology for SES Broadband Services. The test was completed with next generation Ka-Band Sat3Play® terminals, which feature download speeds beyond 10 Mbps, and related hub infrastructure including a new high speed modem and outdoor unit.
Newtec has signed an important deal with leading satellite-based Internet provider InSat to supply and install Sat3Play® hub and terminal technology delivering next generation Ka-Band communications over Afghanistan.
