Satellite Communications

A complete range of SATCOM terminals and antennas to keep users connected in any environment.

Sized for any Application

Ultra is a leading global specialist in the design, development, supply and support of a complete range of advanced ultra-light portable fly-away terminals, driveaway satellite antennas and troposcatter equipment for secure government, military and commercial broadcast communications. The company’s solutions scale from very small manpack solutions which can be deployed in minutes, to medium-sized systems, to large troposcatter systems. Ultra has been providing SATCOM solutions to systems integrators and armed forces around the world for over 25 years.

Harsh climate? No problem.

Ultra’s SATCOM solutions are designed to operate in the harshest conditions, ensuring that users have continuous access to reliable communications regardless of the operating environment. Whatever size antenna - 0.23m to 3.7m – and wherever in the world it may be required, Ultra’s specialised team of engineers and technicians offer installation, integration and adaptation to local conditions, combined with a through-life, in-service support provision that safeguards operational capability - even in remote environments. Ultra’s SATCOM solutions are currently deployed in many harsh environments, including northern Canada, the Middle East, and Asia.

Reduce Cost through Commonality.

Ultra understands that when you procure a family of systems, you expect them to function in a similar way. Ultra’s SATCOM solutions are designed and built using a common approach that eases the training burden and parts management. Lifetime ownership costs are greatly reduced, equipment can be repaired more quickly, and training occurs faster. Users transitioning from one model to another will experience a familiarity of systems.

Ultra Light and Ultra Deployable. It’s in our name.

Ultra’s new ULV-950mp model represents a leap forward in manpack satellite terminals. Its robust compact and ultra-light design enables a single individual to set up and operate the terminal with no tools or special equipment required. Featuring an auto-assist display, the terminal can be up and running in less than five minutes, making it ideal for high-pressure and harsh environments. The solution is modem agnostic for maximum deployment flexibility. Tri-band configurable, terminal operators can change frequency bands in the field, maximising modularity mission performance.

Compatible with leading satellite networks.

Ultra understands that a SATCOM offering is only as good as the satellite networks it can connect to. Ultra’s range of SATCOM solutions run on the world’s leading satellite networks, including WGS, AVANTI’s HYLAS, Inmarsat Global Xpress, and Intelsat FlexMove.
