ThinKom Solutions, Inc. (ThinKom) a global leader in broadband satellite communication solutions, announced today that the US Federal Communication Commission (FCC) has granted the first low-profile Vehicle Mounted Earth Station (VMES) license (44 C.F.R. 25.226) for its ThinSAT® 300 on-the-move antenna product.

The license provides ALSAT approval allowing operation on any of the authorized domestic satellites without further license additions or modifications. The license also authorizes the highest uplink Power Spectral Density (PSD) limits approved for such terminals, supporting 18.4 dB/4KHz. This level of spectral efficiency uniquely obviating the need to use costly spread spectrum waveforms.

The ThinSAT® 300 is the world’s lowest-profile affordable solution for Ku-Band Satellite Communications On-The-Move (SOTM). The ultra-low-profile (4.5-inch-high), 60-inch-long enclosure, provides up to 8Mbps data rates and up to 4X lower operating expense to the end user.

“This is an important endorsement by the FCC of ThinKom’s game-changing antenna technology,” said Bill Milroy, CTO of ThinKom Solutions, “Our ThinSAT® 300 not only offers next- generation capabilities, but the low-profile system offers a more discrete visual signature and is compatible with smaller, more affordable vehicles.”

ThinKom will have a variety of products on display at the Satellite 2013 Conference (booth #6111) being held March 18 through March 21, 2013 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC. Representatives from ThinKom will be available to answer technical questions and to discuss sales, marketing, and partnering arrangements, for both domestic and international sales opportunities. You may also contact Greg Otto, Director of Sales and Marketing, at (310) 802-4507 or e-mail to
