MT-2012 US Patent # 7,592,953
The MT-2012 is the newest member of Comtech Mobile
Datacom’s packet data network, providing near real-time
satellite-enhanced communications services.
The need for
increased functionality led to the development of the
MT-2012 which integrates GB GRAM military GPS and radio
frequency identification (RFID) technology with their
own specific antennas within a rugged metal housing designed
to withstand the rigors of the battlefield environment.
An RFID interrogator provides Total Asset Visibility
(TAV) by interrogating RF tags attached to cargo containers
and reporting data back to headquarters over the satellite
link. The addition of a 512K buffer allows the MT-2012
to accept large data dumps for packetized transmission
over the satellite.
The MT-2012 joins the MT-2011 as the
solution of choice for over-the-horizon, on-the-move
(OTH/OTM) missions under battlefield conditions, operating
anywhere in the world over commercial satellite systems
to track mobile assets and provide two-way communications.
