Gilat Showcases its Lightweight Compact Satellite Communications Solution for UAVs at LAAD 2013

- Highly integrated solution breaks new ground in size and weight, allowing BLoS operation for very small UAV platform -

Petah Tikva, Israel, April 4, 2013 - Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: GILT) - a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions, and services - announced today that it will be showcasing its new lightweight integrated airborne satellite communications solution for UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) at LAAD 2013, taking place April 9-12 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Weighing only 22 lb (10.5 kg) and capable of transmitting 1Mbps of IP-based data, Gilat's UAV solution is comprised of a ruggedized spread spectrum satellite modem; a two-way, on-the-move, flat panel tracking antenna; and a compact 40W Ku-band block up-converter (BUC) and power amplifier. The tightly integrated solution provides a lightweight, compact and low-power terminal that is ideal for airborne applications - and can be tailored to meet varied end-user specifications and requirements. The miniature dimensions of the solution allow BLoS (Beyond Line of Sight) operations for very small UAV platforms.

The UAV terminal utilizes commercial, geostationary satellite capacity to provide full-duplex satellite communication, linking the UAV to its remote control facility. The forward link provides command and control capabilities, while the return link transfers sensor data.

The terminal provides spectrum-efficient IP connectivity, adaptive in real time to varying link conditions, and operational in temperatures ranging from -40 to +60 Celsius. Built-in web and SNMP-based control enable remote management.

Gilat will be showcasing and presenting its products at the Israel Pavilion, Hall 4, Stand I.30a.
