All Outdoor VSAT


A sealed, all weather enclosure operational under a wide-range of external conditions. Temperature operating range of -40 to +60 C (-40 to +140 F) High reliability with industrial grade components Internal thermostatically controlled heater for cold/heat-sink and fans for heat dissipation Increased lightning protection All external connections are weatherproof

All Outdoor VSAT

The SkyEdge Armadillo VSAT is a state of the art, all-outdoor VSAT that is a thoroughly manageable and comprehensive communications solution combining industry leading technologies with a hardened case providing all-weather communications in harsh environments. The VSAT is perfect for utilities, oil & gas, other industries, and even military organizations requiring monitoring of remote infrastructure. SCADA, video surveillance and other applications where all hardware is outside are supported through the exceptionally reliable SkyEdge Armadillo.

conditions. All connectors are hermetically sealed to protect the electronics from water, sand and humidity. The internal heater and fans provide a temperature controlled environment for the most extreme conditions. The Armadillo VSAT incorporates two options for power save modes, supporting solar powered operations where no external power lines are available.

Unmatched Functionality
As acceleration and other critical software is embedded within the VSATs, there is no need for external boxes or other non-weather proofed equipment. Software is easily managed, fully controlled and updated remotely from the Network Monitoring System. SkyEdge Armadillo is the perfect VSAT for collection and transmission of critical data at remote outdoor locations. Whether monitoring remote pipeline sections, providing video surveillance of facilities, or other uses where information is required for proactive maintenance or security, SkyEdge Armadillo is the solution.

When Failure is Not an Option

The Armadillo VSAT is based upon the SkyEdge IP VSAT technology, including Gilats product experience with TCP and HTTP acceleration, VPN, QoS, high inbound bit rates, improved access scheme and modulations. The Armadillo was specially designed to function under severe weather
