OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 19, 2013) - C-COM Satellite Systems Inc., (TSX VENTURE:CMI) a leading global provider of mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems, introduced the first of their new generation Ka-band Flyaway Antennas today at the Satellite 2013 exhibition in Washington, DC.
The new iNetVu® FLY-75V model is a 75cm Ka-band Flyaway Antenna which can be easily transported in two rugged, lightweight cases. The product offers fully automated satellite acquisition to commercial broadband Ka satellite service users in North America (Viasat Exede) and in Europe (Eutelsat Tooway KaSat).
"The Fly-75V model is the first of a number of Ka Flyaway products to be introduced to the market shortly" said Bilal Awada, CTO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. The system can be transported, assembled and disassembled by one person, in less than 10 minutes, without any tools. The fully automated antenna, using the proprietary iNetVu® controller, can find satellite at the press of a button within minutes of deployment.
The Fly-75V is aimed for a number of Ka market verticals including Satellite News Gathering, disaster recovery, emergency services, and any other high bandwidth applications, which require quick deployment in the field by people with minimal knowledge about antenna pointing.
The new Flyaway platform is designed to be flexible, lightweight and scalable. It can be easily configured and adapted to a number of small size Ka antennas in order to serve emerging Ka services around the globe. The near zero backlash motorized pedestal drive and the high pointing accuracy set a new standard in the auto-deploy antenna industry.
"C-COM continues to raise the bar for auto-deploy antennas both in their ease-of-use, reliability and affordability", said Leslie Klein, President and CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc.
