ThinPack Ku100

Next Generation Portable Manpack Terminal Provides Commercial and Government Users Broadband Ku-Band Connectivity

ThinKom’s portable, planar antenna provides high throughput and highly efficient use of transponder bandwidth in three different models. The Ku100 (US Domestic) and Ku100i (international) terminals’ small form factor allow for a single, airline carry-on overhead compatible case. The Ku200 provides higher EIRP with lower ASI and fits into a single, airline checkable case. No antenna assembly is required and the antennas are fast and easy to align and stabilize. The broadband terminals support full international Ku-Band frequency coverage.
