The Lite Sat-FP-W, or Lite Sat® Wedge, is a tactical flat panel Electronically Steerable Array (ESA) based satellite communications system. The first of its kind device is available with a variety of options tailored to meet the needs of today’s war-fighter. The systems operate over traditional Ku GEO satellites, OVZON 30B networks and Ku LEO. The data throughput of this system on the OVZON and LEO networks are a true game changer in the SATCOM Market.

The standard unit has 2 Transmit (Tx) and 2 Receive (Rx) arrays packaged in a modular assembly, attaching to the RF Equipment (RFE). It can also be paired with our Lite Sat-FP-W-X expansion kit which includes two additional Tx and two additional Rx arrays, and a power supply. We also have a single Tx or a single Rx device for unique applications.

Optional modems include the Lite Sat-TMA-950 which incorporates the iDirect 950 modem, the UHP-200 modem used on OVZON and the all new LEO constellation.

Our ESA panels have the best performance on the market today. The system is linear polarized with a circular polarization option.
