Inflatable Satellite Communications

These non-program-of-record Inflatable Satellite Communications (SATCOM) Antennas (ISAs) use a unique ultra-portable design that can provide high-bandwidth communications for transmissions of secure and non-secure data, voice and video, all in a compact easy to deploy package. ISAs set up rapidly to provide agile SATCOM in remote locations. 

These commercial satellite terminals are designed to be lighter and more compact than traditional, rigid satellite dishes. Because the satellite terminals are inflatable, they can provide a larger dish size, with increased capability and bandwidth efficiency, in a smaller package. 


  • Rapid set up/tear down by one to two General Purpose Users 
  • Light weight and highly portable for agile SATCOM
  • The 4m and 2.4m terminals are packed in up to six transit cases and the 1.2m can be deployed in two carry-on soft cases or two backpacks
  • 4m is Ku capable while the 2.4m & 1.2m terminals are C, Ku, Ka and X band capable
