Satellite 2013

 - The Future in Satellite Internet Connectivity Will be Showcased Along With
            Major Advancements in Land and Air SOTM Applications -

PETAH TIKVA, Israel, March 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gilat Satellite
Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq:GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking
technology, solutions and services, announced today it will showcase its
newest solutions for internet connectivity as well as key advancements in land
and air SOTM (satellite-on-the-move) applications at the Satellite 2013 show,
taking place March 18 - March 21, 2013 in Washington, DC. These solutions are
designed to benefit communication professionals and end users both in
developed and emerging markets.

Gilat's Satellite 2013 highlights will include:

  *The 'New Simple' in Internet Connectivity, Gilat's new SkyEdge II-c system
    offers ISPs and VNO's the business edge they are looking for in today's
    competitive world. The compact, fully integrated, easy to install system
    allows them to start small and expand as demand grows while delivering the
    business flexibility they need to provide customized and competitive
    Internet connectivity services.
  *A breakthrough solution in content contribution and distribution for
    broadcasters, Spacenet's Dual-Access platform combines the flexibility,
    control and efficiency of TDMA with the sheer speed of SCPC. This
    'make-or-break' advantage for today's broadcasters will be demonstrated
    live at the show.
  *Selected by Honeywell for their airborne antenna systems to provide
    in-flight connectivity to the Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) network, Gilat's
    Wavestream amplifiers and transceivers set the highest standards for
    performance, efficiency and power. Among the Wavestream products we will
    be featuring are the Aerostream Transceiver and the Matchbox Mini Block
    Upconverter (BUC).
  *Gilat's new UAV terminal addresses the defense and military market's
    critical need to exploit the full capabilities of the aircraft's
    operational range. As one of the industry's smallest and most compact
    aerial solutions in its category, the Gilat integrated approach can
    dramatically increase mission effectiveness.
  *The EagleRay 7000 is part of Gilat's RaySat series of low-profile,
    in-motion, two-way antennas for mobile communications-on-the-move (COTM).
    Compact, aerodynamic and vehicle-mounted, the new EagleRay 7000 is a step
    ahead of other antennas in its category in delivering mission-critical
    data, voice and video for secure, real-time information flow at speeds
    exceeding 10 Mbps on standard satellites. The antenna can be operated
    virtually anywhere in the world.

These products will be joined by other Gilat VSAT innovations, SOTM antennas,
military solutions, and BUCs and transceivers at booth #6057. To set a meeting
