The TP100 Ku IP Flyaway – Internet is a quick deployable satellite antenna system from Holkirk Communications.
It has been designed to form the heart of an IP network injection point from remote locations. With integrated waterproof IP modem and WiFi router, the TP100 Ku IP Flyaway – Internet is truly your office in the field.
Power options – To establish a 1Mb/5Mb internet link the TP100 Internet can be fitted with either a 6W or 8W BUC, both options can be powered directly from the modem and are capable of remote connection via the 12VDC battery system or any standard vehicle 12V outlet.
Robust – The design includes a 5 segment, 1m high gain carbon fibre reflector, ‘no-tools’ assembly, folding feed arm assembly, quick deploy tripod, inclinometer and fine adjust on azimuth and elevation. The tripod has detachable sand feet to allow for ground anchors to be fitted ensuring maximum stability for reliable operation. The lightweight, high quality and reliable construction in conjunction with high gain 1m carbon reflector will ensure excellent performance even at the extremities of the satellite footprint.
Ease of pointing – Once the antenna has been assembled (typically under 5 minutes) the satellite can be found by using our MPAD2 hand held device, this will assist in the pointing to any satellite. The MPAD2 has an integrated GPS, electronic compass and inclinometer that will give the user a target azimuth/elevation and polarisation position and an actual read-out for the true position of all the axis. The MPAD2 has a built-in signal strength meter to allow accurate peaking to the satellite.
IP sub-systems – The TP100-Internet can be offered with a ruggedised IP modem and ruggedised WiFi router. The IP modem will be attached to the rear of the antenna thus reducing the length of L-Band cables. There is space and weight budget, to include the IP modem within the 2 off IATA compliant cases.
The ruggidised WiFi router has the ability to create a WiFi hotspot or use the WiFi as a separate WAN interface. It also has two GSM modem radio’s to give 3G/4G WAN capability.
Power options – The TP100 Ku IP Flyaway – Internet in conjunction with the ruggedised outdoor modem (ODU), can be powered from a variety sources, either from a 240V via a PSU, direct from a 12V vehicle supply, or from standard camera batteries (Vee-lock, PAG etc).
