X130D PM

The world’s first and only 1.2 m class Ku/Ka electronically switchable, multi-orbit VSAT terminal designed for Military application

The Intellian X130D PM electronically switches between Ku-band and Ka-band operation, dual-pol, allowing the choice of many services, and providing reliable connectivity even in the harshest sea environments.

X130D PM
Key Features

GEO/MEO/LEO tracking capability

The X130D PM can operate in all the GEO Ku/Ka services supporting full commercial 2.5 GHz wide Ka-band coverage, also future proof, providing optimal performance on not only GSO but also on both existing and new NGSO constellations. The X130D PM is designed to be ready for all GEO, MEO, and LEO constellations.

High power upgradable

The X130D PM provides a wide range of options in terms of BUC power. The Ku-band supporting up to 40W BUC, and Ka-band 20W XCVR. The high power option enables much higher throughput allowing global high bandwidth capability.

Fiber optic solution

Fiber optic option allows minimal signal loss regardless of cable length. It enables greater bandwidth capability compared to a coaxial cable connection between the ADU and the BDU. The fiber optic solution is ideal for high throughput installations and allows for quicker and easier installations.

Military grade terminal

The X130D PM is specially designed for use in military applications and complies with required specifications, including FCC, ETSI, MIL-STD-810H and MIL-STD-461G. The terminal is able to operate and survive in the harshest sea environment, providing reliable communications during military operations.

Compact dual-band, dual-pol solution 

  • Uses Ka-band for high volume/traffic and Ku-band for coverage gaps:
    - Electronically seamless switch between services to maximize bandwidth and network access
    - Uninterrupted by bad weather using Ku-band
  • Compact form factor with single center feed design and Ka-band transceiver integration for simpler RF design
  • Electronically  switch function for Ku-Ka band switching and co & cross polarization switching with electrical RF switch

Future proof: multi-orbit tracking

  • Support on any commercial Ku-band and Ka-band operation provided predominantly by GEO satellites
  • Dual antenna installation support for NGSO make-before-break HOs
  • Supports wide Ka-band feed (2.5 GHz bandwidth) covering the MEO constellation
  • GEO & MEO tracking system (program tracking and conical scanning)

Embedded antenna & modem mediator ACU

  • Embedded antenna mediator: easy dual-antenna setup for blockage mitigation and seamless connection
  • Embedded modem mediator: connection up to 2 GSO modems
