For small teams operating at the tactical edge, a communications link is a lifeline. Harris tactical satellite communication (SATCOM) solutions provide man-transportable, vehicle-mounted and handheld multiband satellite communication capabilities for users in harsh, isolated environments, delivering high-bandwidth data anywhere on Earth via virtually all military and commercial wideband satellite constellations.

The Harris family of tactical SATCOM terminals is designed to help users succeed in a broad range of missions. The Modular Aperture Quad-band Antenna (MAQA) and Seeker™ tactical terminals are highly portable, require no tools for assembly and are easy to train and use. Seeker terminals can even be checked as luggage on most commercial aircraft. They range in size from 3.8 meters to 0.45 meters and are compliant with MIL-STD-810 for temperature, shock and vibration. Harris multiband SATCOM terminals provide reliable access to nearly every wideband satellite constellation, including Defense Satellite Communications System (DSCS), Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS), EutelSat, SES World Skies and Global Express, with development of O3b compatibility underway.

Handheld solutions like the RO® Tactical Radio and RO®-Mobile Awareness Platform (RO®-MAP) provide rapid, global push-to-talk and visual situational awareness capabilities for users in remote locations via the Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) Distributed Tactical Communication System. Vehicle-mounted solutions include the Global Network on the Move Active Distribution (GNOMAD), which provides reliable SATCOM to mobile platforms including military vehicles and commercial SUVs. GNOMAD extends a robust and secure mobile network to users operating at the forward edge of the last tactical mile with a low profile, high data rate antenna.
