Tracking the narrow beam of a geosynchronous satellite more than 22,000 miles above the Earth while the deck below pitches and rolls is no easy feat. Harris satellite communication (SATCOM) terminals provide military and commercial customers with a proven, high-capacity communications capability designed to perform under even the most difficult maritime conditions. The U.S. Navy has relied on Harris SATCOM terminals for more than a decade to deliver dependable communications to the fleet, with a demonstrated availability of 99 percent.

The isolation and harsh conditions of service at sea make reliable communications a pivotal part of survivability and mission success. Harris maritime terminals provide worldwide wideband communications to a growing contingent of international navies via U.S. and allied military satellite networks, as well as high-capacity access to commercial communication satellites for non-military customers.

The Harris family of maritime SATCOM terminals provides reliable communications to deployed naval combatants and support ships – small and large – as well as commercial maritime vessels, globally. Harris offers high-data rate communications at the fleet and unit level, including X and Ka-band access to the Defense Satellite Communications System (DSCS) and the Wideband Global Satellite (WGS) network. Commercial maritime customers also rely on Harris terminals for Ku and C-band access to commercial communications satellites.
