Leonardo DRS’ collection of Communications On-the-Move (COTM) Antenna Systems are a modular solutions for ground, airborne, and maritime platforms conducting satellite communications (SATCOM). With multiple sizes and frequency band coverages available, a system can be tailored to a missions’ unique requirements without fearing communication loss.
Leonardo DRS provides additional communication solutions that provide line-of-sight, beyond line-of-sight and situational awareness, check out Leonardo DRS' Joint Tactical Terminals and Tactical Data Links.
Designed with the highest quality commercial-off-the-shelf components, the Modular Communications On-the-Move (COTM) Antenna Systems are a match for the most challenging environments—where voice, video and data connections are vital to mission success and warfighter safety. The family of antenna systems is available in X-Band, Ka-Band, and Ku-Band in both 46 cm and 60 cm variants. All models are field-proven for both military and commercial satellite applications on vehicles, ships and aircraft.
Thanks to a lightweight, dual-purpose design, operators can easily deploy and assemble Shipboard Carry-on SATCOM System (SCOSS), quickly providing a quality connection. Data rates expand up to 6 megabytes per second using both commercial Ku- and X-band frequencies. Operators can also choose between single and dual antenna configurations to compensate for potential blockages. SCOSS provides the flexibility for Navy vessels large and small. The system can even continue service on a ground vehicle to provide continuous high bandwidth communication after a ship has docked.
