Expanding GetSAT's satcom solutions for on-the-move L-band applications, Ultra Blade combines unbeatable size, weight and power consumption (SWaP) within a package of less than 5Lbs (2.4kg).

GetSAT's solution enables miniaturization of L-Band terminals shaving weight off the package while simultaneously adding more satcom capabilities. With more than 90% antenna efficiency and the unprecedented capability to independently track any L-band satellite, Ultra Blade brings exceptional high throughput solution in any environment: aviation, ground and maritime.

GetSAT CEO Kfir Benjamin stated, "Ultra Blade ends the physical, power, and directional limitations of today's heavy and often unwieldly L-Band terminals. Listening to our customers, we developed Ultra Blade's innovative super low-profile antenna in a completely self-contained rugged casing. GetSAT is driving the industry's conception forward by opening a wealth of new opportunities for L-Band users whose remote activities require full-time, mission critical operations."
