Starling To Unveil Unique Fly-Away Satellite Antenna

Yoqneam, Israel -- Starling Advanced Communications is introducing the StarPack, a single-case, fly-away antenna providing two-way, high-speed Ku broadband satellite communications from anywhere on earth. Starling will be featuring the StarPack at Satellite 2010, March 16-18, at booth 549.

"We've applied our expertise in providing broadband on the move to develop a lightweight, portable flat-panel antenna for single-person use," says Jacob Keret, VP Marketing and Sales, Starling Advanced Communications. "StarPack's rugged design provides excellent durability, making it suitable for the harshest conditions and locations."

StarPack operates in a full range of scenarios - front-line military, homeland security, disaster recovery, and news broadcasting. A satellite-based system requiring no land infrastructure, it provides seamless communications, easily delivering heavy video, voice, and data files.

The self-contained system consists of an antenna panel, positioner, all RF units and amplifier. It is available in a portable, wheeled carry-on measuring 56x36x26 centimeters (22x14x10 inches) and weighs 21 kg (46 lb).

Like Starling's other breakthrough systems, MIJET®, StarRailTM, and StarCarTM, StarPack leverages Ku-band technology for true broadband benefits. It ensures fast, easy deployment by a single operator. The unit instantly acquires and tracks the satellite, resulting in instantaneous video, voice, and data transmission to and from the scene of an occurrence anywhere regardless of location and conditions.
