ELK-1882T Airborne AESA SATCOM System



3/15/20241 min read

ELK-1882T airborne AESA SATCOM system is a network of SATCOM On-the-Move (SOTM) terminals, based on electronically-steered phased array antenna technology. The system provides Beyond-Line-of-Sight (BLOS) communication
to airborne platforms including fighters and special mission aircraft. The system operates in either Ku or Ka-band frequencies, using geostationary satellites. The network supports hundreds of registered users. The terminal comprises a single LRU which includes
a conformal electronic steering antenna, modem and High-Power Amplifier (HPA). The terminal has a low Radar Cross Section (RCS), and its conformal flat panel antenna creates minimal aerodynamic drag. The terminal is simple to integrate and can be installed on a wide range of aerial platforms.tems
