DSEi Exhibition, London, England | Elbit Systems Ltd. today introduced the MSR-3000, a unique advanced portable man-pack satellite communication (SATCOM) solution especially suited for Special Forces.
The MSR-3000 integrates all components necessary for military broadband satellite communication into a single, compact, transportable unit, enabling rapid and reliable deployment, especially suitable for Special Forces and the rapid deployment missions of today's modern battlefield.
Boasting full integration with Elbit Systems' wide range of C4I military applications and solutions, and packaged in a single-handed carry case or backpack, the system is suitable for emergency response and in-theater communications.
MSR-3000 offers highly efficient satellite space segment utilization and delivers higher bandwidth, using less satellite resources, providing reliable communications in any climate and under any environmental conditions. With low power consumption and the required ruggedness for operation in harsh military environments, MSR-3000 offers highly advanced scalable performance that establishes it as a cutting-edge BLOS (beyond line-of-sight) communication solution for all command levels. Available as a manual pointing or auto-acquiring man-pack VSAT system, the MSR-3000 is comprised of an antenna outdoor unit (ODU) and a ruggedized MIL-STD base-band unit.
The integrated satellite router features advanced protocol acceleration and optimization combined with robust encryption capabilities and includes an interface to an external encryption unit.
Leveraging Elbit Systems’ extensive experience in delivering world-class, field-proven military communications solutions, the compact MSR-3000 can be utilized in a wide range of applications including C4I, internet, VPN connectivity, video transmission, surveillance, and reconnaissance.
The MSR-3000 is a part of the InterSKY 4M SATCOM platform, introduced by Elbit Systems in March 2011. The InterSKY 4M is a tactical broadband satellite communication (SATCOM) platform, designed specifically for government and military Beyond-Line-Of-Sight (BLOS) applications. The end-to-end InterSKY 4M platform delivers highly reliable broadband multi-service triple-play (voice, video and data) capabilities for static, deployed and maneuvering On-The-Move (OTM) needs.
InterSKY 4M is a comprehensive platform encompassing all elements for the design, deployment and management of an entire satellite network. It is fully integrated in Elbit C4I military systems, providing support for both OTH (Over The Horizon) and BLOS two-way broadband communications.
