Low-profile BGAN

Unmanned concealed terminal with global coverage

The unique, rapidly deployable lie-flat antenna and robust remotely operated BGAN terminal supply the high-speed IP communications needed to make electronic surveillance and intelligence a powerful force multiplier in covert or discreet operations. The antenna is built around a solid state, multi-phased array that provides a 30 to 60-degree view angle when laid flat. The lie-flat capability is generated by the use of an advanced, solid-state, phased-array antenna, differentiating Low-profile BGAN from all other terminals. Low-profile BGAN’s remote operation and advanced power management reflect the design principles of maximizing cost and operational effectiveness while minimizing the exposure of personnel to risk.

With built-in GPS, Low-profile BGAN reduces the exposure of personnel to unnecessary risks and can be used for discreet and sensitive operations:

  • The antenna can be covered with a thin layer of any non-metallic material
  • The unit is silent in operation, and both modem and antenna are IP-67 rated
  • It can be configured to lie dormant until woken by a command over the network or a locally generated alarm signal from a connected sensor
  • Due to its very long battery life, the unit can be remotely operated, and very effectively hidden

Simple to use
The easy-to-use unit reduces the need for trained manpower and is simple to install without a PC.
Minimal pointing
An arrow on the antenna’s cover indicates the direction in which the antenna needs to be pointed, and audio pointing tones are also generated to a 0.14” jack socket. The antenna is placed on a flat surface and oriented in the direction of the satellite and can then be covered with a light layer of soil or vegetation. The terminal is then connected to the IP feed from the surveillance and intelligence gathering systems.
Remote management
Low-profile BGAN’s sophisticated power management capability includes remote controlled wake-on-SMS or local automatically trigged power-up. This allows the system to operate for extended periods in stand-by mode, which enables ultra-low power consumption and thus extended battery life.
Rapidly deployable sensors
High performance sensors can be rapidly deployed at zero notice and the service fills gaps in existing sensor networks.
Global coverage
Low-profile BGAN is available across the globe, with the exception of the extreme Polar Regions, providing connectivity wherever your operations take you.
Reliable network
The service is delivered over the Inmarsat ELERA network, with 99.9 percent availability.
Low-profile BGAN meets military and government requirements for security and supports all major VPN products and encryption standards.
