The S-PLANE TRACKER 100, with integrated communication links and antennas, provides long-range Line of Sight Communication (LOSCom) between aircraft and Ground Control Stations (GCSs). The opposite ends of the links are especially suited for installation on-board aircraft, providing MIMO diversity mesh functionality to create and fit reliable and flexible network architectures. The trackers are easy to deploy and to use and are extremely rugged and reliable. LOSCom and SatCom are integrated and managed to ensure seamless, uninterrupted communication. Communication Solution management is performed using S-PLANE’s Airborne Data Terminal (ADT) and Ground Data Terminal (GDT) equipment. The TRACKER 100 is currently in reliable operational use in Europe, the Middle East and Africa under some of the harshest conditions.
