The Hawkeye III VSAT System for Rapid Deployment of Voice, Data, Video



Common Architecture, Lightweight and Reliable

AT Communications International now offers Hawkeye™ III, the latest generation of the industry-renowned VSAT equipment, are proven, reliable, lightweight and now even easier to use. Giving users the ability to switch between bands and apertures without having to purchase an additional system, the Hawkeye™ III series VSATs range in antenna size from 1.2M to 2.4M, and utilize an enhanced outdoor unit (ODU) to eliminate reconfiguration and allow common control. In fact, a simple swap of the feed boom assembly is all that is required to switch between bands.

System Features

  • Enhanced outdoor unit (ODU)
  • Segmented carbon fiber reflector offers high performance and light weight
  • Robust, auto-acquisition to support Ku, X-, Ka-, and C-Bands
  • Interchangeable feed boom design allows for easy RF Band change
  • Interchangeable reflector design allows user to switch easily between aperture sizes
  • 4 LAN ports or 3 LAN ports plus DSL option
  • MIL-STD-810G tested
  • Type-approved for Global Xpress
