SkyRAY Light is ND SatCom’s mobile VSAT antenna subsystem for real-time IP based communication via satellite. The transmit-and-receive antenna subsystem supports mobile IP based VSAT and SNG applications. SkyRAY Light caters to vertical markets such as government, broadcasting and the enterprise sector. With this system ND SatCom can now also respond to companies searching for affordable IP only solutions with small to medium data rates but which were previously unable to afford such a service. Together with ND SatCom’s SkyWAN® or SkyARCS IP feature set, SkyRAY Light provides always-on, broadband field communications for voice, video and data applications.

SkyRAY Light is the most lightweight mobile antenna system in its class and can be mounted quickly on standard roof bars of any passenger car, truck or SUV without modifications. Easy installation and operation make the antenna system interchangeable within a fleet on demand. SkyRAY Light’s operational concept is plug & play. Used together with the Automatic Pointing System’s one-button operation, it allows non-technical users to be on air within minutes. With APS, SkyRAY Light does not need a pilot signal or any reference satellites. The system can be used worldwide at any location and requires no manual lineup.

SkyRAY Light’s control system is revolutionary. Unlike any other system, a special patented antenna control concept enables all antenna control functions to operate without an additional external controller. It only requires a simple USB port on a computer. The control concept has never been used before in this way in such environments and offers customers highest levels of reliability, precision and robustness.
