Primetech has added the versatile MANTA® to its satellite communications product offering. MANTA is a single case, self-pointing satellite terminal providing Ku-Band high throughput mobile satellite broadband. It is a complete plug-and-go solution, designed for both static and mobile satellite communications - portable, discreet and operational in minutes. No pointing is required and there are no moving parts.
A key component of the MANTA satcomms terminal system is the PIM® (Paradigm Interface Module) technology solution. This is an integrated modem, power distribution and baseband system that enhances ease of use, as well as providing terminal management and control, all in a ruggedised, environmentally rated unit. The system utilises software to form beams and track the satellite providing rapid connectivity with no moving parts. The handheld remote offers additional live beam heading indication, satellite selection, transmit mute and system status information.
Enhanced Network Uptime
The PIM speeds up the satellite acquisition and re-acquisition process resulting in optimised network services uptime. PIM technology enables users to be connected for longer.
Low Profile Quick Vehicle Mount
The MANTA vehicle mounting kit is designed to minimise the profile of the terminal when installed on vehicles - it has a low profile and streamlined design - and utilises a specially designed cradle that mounts between roof rails. It is lightweight for easy transportation and vehicle mounting. Additionally, it is robust and weatherproof for operation in extreme and demanding environments.
Quick Satellite Advancement
Users can quickly manually advance through the available satellites using the handheld remote to avoid blockage zones and assist in quicker satellite acquisition times.
Handheld Satellite Status Indicator
The MANTA remote offers terminal status, live satellite heading information and signal strength to the user, enabling user-based satellite selection decisions.
MANTA is already deployed in Comms-On-The-Move and Comms-On-The-Pause operations, on multiple continents.
Fully Integrated Satellite/LTE/4G/Wi-Fi
Utilising an enhanced feature set, the MANTA+ option adds LTE, 4G and Wi-Fi network connectivity to satellite network connectivity, supporting least-cost routing and bearer-of-opportunity network routing.
Wired and/or Wireless Connectivity
The MANTA and MANTA+ terminals offer connection to the terminal M&C and Data networks using wired ethernet and/or Wi-Fi connectivity.
