The Canadian Army will rely on Rockwell Collins’ SWE-DISH CCT120 suitcase satellite terminal for its Land Forces Portable Satellite Terminal program.

The company confirmed the contract for 30 CCT120s during CANSEC 2014 in Ottawa, adding that the deal includes an option for 20 more terminals.

“The CCT120 is the quickest-to-air terminal in the world, giving the Canadian Army access to advanced satellite technology that can be operated by one person in the field,” said managing director Lee Obst in a press release.

The terminal in a suitcase, which is airline-checkable, is based on modular architecture. The antenna system, transceiver and modem cartridge change be easily changed in the field by an operator to fit mission requirements. It is compatible with standard commercial SATCOM networks and with the Wideband Global Satellite military constellation.
