HUGHES FLIGHT TEST: NSA 407 WITH SATCOM SYSTEMS
DataPath’s CCT 200 ground terminal was recently used during a helicopter flight test to transmit HD surveillance video from a helicopter over Inmarsat Mil-Ka band. During the demonstration, the team, which consisted of representatives and equipment from a number of companies, including DataPath, successfully transmitted “real-time, high definition video through helicopter blades with no signal disruption using its unique beyond-line-of-sight (BLoS) technology.”
“The testing of the Hughes end-to-end SATCOM solution for airborne platforms was performed on a NorthStar Aviation Bell 407 multi-role helicopter (MRH), and was supported by Boeing, General Dynamics, DataPath, and Northrop Grumman Corporation. The test was the first of its kind in the Ka-band over the Inmarsat-5 (I-5) F2 satellite, part of the Global Xpress constellation.”
