L-3 GCS Introduces Hawkeye Drive-Away VSAT Terminal

L3 GCS announced the introduction of its new Hawkeye™ III DriveAway VSAT system. This versatile solution is capable of being utilized as both a land mobile satellite communications (SATCOM) terminal as well as a Communications-On-The-Pause (COTP) SATCOM terminal. Current and future customers now have the ability to make use of their Hawkeye terminals for applications that require vehicular mounting. Developed with L3's current Hawkeye III Lite customers in mind, the system provides all of the same dependability, flexibility and ruggedness that they have come to expect from L3 GCS SATCOM terminals. Along with the industry benchmark Hawkeye III Lite, the new driveaway system is a 1.2M, fully autoacquire SATCOM terminal that can be dismounted from a vehicle to support groundbased deployments. It provides the same multiband advantage as L3's Hawkeye family of terminals, with an easy swap of a feed boom assembly to change frequency bands. The system is fully compatible with the current inventory of Hawkeye III Lite boom assemblies in use with existing customers. The L3 GCS Hawkeye III DriveAway VSAT system is available in X, Ku and KaBands and offers versatility for SATCOM users who desire a vehicle mounted antenna with all the modularity of a flyaway antenna system.
