SATCOM INTRODUCES TRUE AUTOMATIC POINTING SYSTEM.
ND SatCom, a global supplier of satellite-based broadband VSAT (Very Small Aperture satellite Terminal) A small earth station for satellite transmission that handles up to 56 Kbits/sec of digital transmission. VSATs that handle the T1 data rate (up to 1.544 Mbits/sec) are called "TSATs. , broadcast and defense communication network solutions, has introduced its latest ground breaking innovation. The true Automatic Pointing System[TM] (APS). This new software allows an optimized one-button-operation for ND SatCom SkyWAN(R) networks with the ND SatCom SkyRAY Antenna Subsystems without requiring additional satellite bandwidth for the antenna positioning.
This innovative Automatic Pointing System can be put into operation worldwide at any location together with an existing SkyWAN(R) network and without pilot signal or reference satellite. Solely the position of the satellite together with all relevant measuring and pointing equipment i.e. SkyWAN(R), Antenna Control Unit (ACU ACU

All monitoring and control functions are performed by ND SatCom's unique Automatic Pointing System[TM] software. Thus, exact antenna pointing takes typically only 5 minutes. APS can be operated by any staff from a laptop Same as laptop computer.
