L3Harris Introduces Compact VSAT that can Connect Warfighters Anywhere in the World

L3Harris Technologies has launched its new Hawkeye 4 (H4) Lite Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT), which connects warfighters virtually anywhere in the world. The H4 Lite is a mobile satellite communications terminal that can rapidly deploy and maneuver across a complex battlefield, while providing high-speed data communications for Internet, C5ISR, and video transmission. This terminal, which is small enough to fit into a suitcase, was designed for both mobile expeditionary teams and high throughput command posts that require mission flexibility and seamless upgrades to emerging capabilities.

The Hawkeye 4 Lite is a flyaway VSAT with a carbon fiber 1.3 m segmented antenna supporting high-speed data and voice for internet, video, and C5ISR applications.

Key features of Hawkeye 4 (H4) Lite:

  • Network flexibility, Tri-Band with Modular Modem options.
  • X, Ku, and Ka bands, with standard and high-power options for each.
  • Field-swappable rugged modem modules.
  • Manual point or fast, one-touch “lock-on,” powered by auto-acquire and beacon receiver technologies.
  • Optional GATEKEEPER technology automatically eliminates interference. 
  • Easy upgrades to new modem technologies, including anti-jam protection.
  • Familiar Viewsat-E GUI reduces training time.

“The Hawkeye 4 Lite is the only available VSAT solution featuring the latest technologies in a single, high-performance terminal with one-touch, auto-acquire and interference mitigation,” said Jerry Adams, General Manager, SATCOM, L3Harris. “We‘ve invested heavily into connected systems that enable the warfighter to make decisions faster, and the Hawkeye does just that.”
