Military communications has always been a key market for Norsat. Whether it is supplying reliable ground satellite terminals or providing customized SWaP satellite component designs, Norsat and military communications seem to work hand-in-hand. From October 23-25, 2017, Norsat exhibited at the MILCOM 2017 show in Baltimore, Maryland.

The three day conference and exhibition was themed “Military Communications and Innovation: Priorities for the Modern Warfight”.

Located in booth #1026, Norsat featured its GLOBETrekker 2.0 ground satellite terminal. This terminal is the world’s most intelligent fly-away satellite terminal and includes the easy-to-use LinkControl software for automatic satellite acquisition. Its compact and lightweight design makes it simple to maneuver and transport. Built to military specifications, the GLOBETrekker 2.0 is the tool operators rely on for mission critical communications anywhere on the planet.

As well, the new Ka-band satellite components were on display at Norsat’s booth. The 50 watt Ka ATOM block upconverter (BUC) and the 4-and 5-band low noise block downconverters (LNBs) offer a complete package for Ka-band. These innovative products are compact and offer excellent reliability to any system. For more information about Norsat’s Ka-band offering, please visit

Norsat products and case studies were featured in the October issue of Satellite Market Briefs which was distributed at MILCOM. The Market Brief report highlighted trends in the growing ground satellite terminal market and the increasing demand of custom products. To read the Market Brief, please click here. 

Overall, the show was a hit! Lots of badges were scanned and visitors were interested in the overall product offering that Norsat could provide. MILCOM was a great event and we hope to showcase our new products at next year’s show!
