MDM9000 Satellite Modem
For Intelligence Gathering Applications, WGS and Milsatcom Networks
The WGS certified MDM9000 Satellite Modem is the versatile modem optimized for a wide range of fixed and mobile government and defense applications over satellite. The MDM9000 modem is typically installed at both ends of a point-to- point satellite link or at the remote sites of a star network. The unit can act as a modulator, demodulator or modem depending on the network configuration and integrates seamlessly with terrestrial networks and equipment. The modem is in full compliance with the DVB-S2 and the DVB-S2X standard while being backward compatible with our S2 Extensions mode, all in order to achieve barrier-breaking efficiency at maximum service availability. In receiver mode, the MDM9000 serves as demodulator with dedicated intelligence gathering features.
The MDM9000 Satellite Modem is the versatile modem that allows service providers and government operations to increase the amount of services or the customer base within the same bandwidth. At the same time it introduces ways to reduce OPEX costs and increase the profitability of your operations at maximum efficiency and optimum availability.
Efficiency at the Core
The MDM9000 Satellite Modem combines a number of innovative elements to improve current market available efficiencies, thereby lowering the overall Total Cost of Ownership.
Modulation and Forward Error Correction (FEC) codes up to 256APSK in the DVB-S2X standard in combination with innovative technologies such as 133 Msps, Clean Channel Technology®, Bandwidth Cancellation (BWC), Automatic Uplink Power Control (AUPC), FlexACM®, QoS, and Equalink® 3 are embedded in the modem and bring the satellite link to full efficiency. The performance can be increased even more by adding our network optimization technologies such as acceleration, compression, shaping and bandwidth management.
By increasing the amount of data that can be transferred per transponder the MDM9000 modem caters for data and video hungry applications such as ISR, MWR, data backhaul, strategical links and disaster recovery networks.
Our auto-adaptive technology FlexACM is incorporated in the MDM9000 modem by default and deals with fading conditions (rain, dust, interference) and inclined orbit satellites with varying throughput. Thanks to FlexACM these fading conditions will no longer interrupt the transmission between the hub and remote sites nor result in loss of data. The maximum possible throughput can be achieved at all times. Additionally the Automatic Uplink Power Control mechanism can ensure maximum use of the linkbudget at all times. In case of link loss due to full shadowing effects, the quick reacquisition feature inside the MDM9000 modem will reactivate the transmission in milliseconds after the satellite link becomes available again.
Flexibility and Scalability Matching Market’s Business Models
An extensive set of encapsulation/decapsulation methods (MPE, XPE, GSE, ULE, Raw Base Band Frame, data piping) allows government and defense agencies to efficiently acquire satellite traffic and demodulate the signal for further processing. The MDM9000 also has a raw baseband data output that can be further processed by intelligent engines while some specific features for intelligence gathering were included in order to detect and capture hidden data in regular Satcom transmissions.
The built-in spectrum analyzer and constellation diagram viewer aid in link analysis.
The built-in bandwidth canceller completely operates in the digital domain providing unsurpassed performance with the lowest possible residual cancellation noise resulting in the highest spectral efficiency.
The Satellite Modem can be easily monitored and controlled via a comprehensive front panel menu, advanced web GUI as well as via SNMP protocol. This enables easy integration into any industry-standard EMS/NMS system.
