GCS Rugged Modem Case

Self-Contained External L-Band Modem Case

GCS Rugged Case Modem L-Band VSAT

The L-3 GCS Rugged Modem Case provides a transportable enclosure for external L-Band modems
and associated equipment. The case is available as either an indoor or an outdoor configuration. The Indoor case is for use in environmentally controlled shelters and comes with an IFL to interface with the VSAT. Outdoor configurations feature an Environmental Control Unit (ECU) and custom sealed external interfaces allowing the case to be positioned outside next the VSAT. The outdoor case is tested to the same rigorous standards as our 810G certified VSATs.

L-3 has designed a custom L-Band Distribution interface that allows precise adjustment of L-Band levels to meet ARSTRAT requirements for WGS operation. This assembly is highly modular and can be configured to accommodate multiple modems along with a rubidium high stability reference and integrated spectrum analyzer.
