C-COM antenna tracks NSLComm's Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite

 Ottawa, September 2019: C-COM Satellite Systems, the world’s leading provider of commercial grade auto-acquire mobile satellite antennas, has announced the successful integration of its 74cm Flyaway antenna system with NSLComm’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) nanosatellite. NSLComm is an Israel-based pioneering nanosatellite telecommunications company that launched the first Gigabit per second Ka-band satellite into orbit in July of this year.

This uniquely successful test completes a significant development project between the two companies. It will open new markets and create new opportunities for both companies.

C-COM’s engineering team developed the NSL ground station demonstrator terminals along with the required tracking software to NSLComm specifications, using the renowned iNetVu® 7700 series controllers. NSLComm provided access to their powerful Ka-band LEO nanosatellite and assisted with daily testing.

The iNetVu® FLY-74 is C-COM's newly developed 74cm, fully automatic, motorized Ka-band flyaway product. This family of antenna systems is highly portable and the choice for various industries such as Oil & Gas, Exploration, Emergency Response, Military Communications, Cellular Backhaul, Satellite News Gathering, and many other vertical markets.

“For C-COM, this test with NSLComm’s LEO nanosatellite opens up new developing markets for our extensive worldwide reseller base,” said Dr. Leslie Klein, President and CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. “The store and forward communication satellite services offered by NSLComm’s LEO satellites in conjunction with our iNetVu® mobile antenna systems will provide our joint customers with a unique, cost-effective high-speed data transfer capability,” Klein continued.

“For NSLComm, the addition of the C-COM FLY-74 as an approved satellite antenna solution opens up new opportunities to deliver gigabit per second speeds for mobile/transportable applications such as natural resource exploration and extraction, remote research stations, disaster management, defense, and many other vertical markets requiring high-capacity connectivity where cost, portability and reliability are key considerations,” said Dr. Raz Itzaki, CEO of NSLComm.
