Q-Lite™ Compact Satellite Modem chosen for its ability to operate at extremely low temperatures

October 10, 2016


After extensive environmental testing, a user in Asia has selected the Q-Lite satellite modem for installation in a drone application. The tests included being able to power up the modem correctly from a cold start at -40 degrees C. The Q-Lite for this line-of-sight application has been built into a custom unheated enclosure that is mounted on a drone that operates at up to 100km from the central control station. 


The Q-Lite, with its high performance specification, small size, low power and low weight has been successfully integrated into a number of satellite terminals, UAVs and aircraft projects around the world and is now firmly established as the leading OEM satellite modem product in the industry.
