Abstract
This proposal for a Ka-band Spread Spectrum terminal presents a unique affordable design approach for On-the-move satellite communications. Over the past 5 years Alico Systems has been involved in the design and development of low cost phased array antennas for the DoD. Our most recent product for the Army is based on a 2 dimensional affordable X-band broadband phased array design. For this Ka-band terminal we are proposing a one dimensional phased array antenna mounted on a turntable coupled to the iDirect e850mp spread spectrum modem to provide 5 Mbps uplink and 5 Mbps downlink capability. The proposed terminal will meet MIL-STD-810G Environmental, MIL-STD-461F EMI, and MIL-STD-1275D Vehicle Power requirements.
