Customers have come to know and rely on the dependency each one of our systems offer.

The WV750, 75 cm, Ka auto-deploy satellite system features robust mechanics and electronics for fast satellite acquisitions and reliable operations, even in the harshest environments. The integrated GPS compass replaces a traditional magnetic compass, which maximizes the speed of satellite acquisition. Its rugged design and ultra-low backlash gear train ensures a reliable and superior performing system. The WV750A’s low stow height and small footprint allow it to be mounted in small spaces. Currently this product is authorized for use on ViaSat® Enterprise Service.

The WX1200, auto-deploy satellite system features one button operation to acquire Ku-band satellite connectivity within minutes. Its robust design features a linear actuator that ensures a reliable, rugged, superior performing system. The low stow height also makes it conducive to be mounted in small spaces where overall height needs to be minimized. The WX1200 is available with a customized skid that allows for easy transportability.
