Pathfinder Digital's Antenna Control Software Ensures Interoperability with Legacy Modems

PathFinder Digital has developed and delivered a Modem Agnostic Antenna Control (MAAC) software that enables the incumbent antenna control units (TracStar/TracLRI) and new iDirect modems to seamlessly interface, retaining all the functionality of the original configuration. This software upgrade is designed to enable legacy TracStar/TracLRI antenna control units to seamlessly interface with new modems such as the iDirect 8 and 9 series modems.

PathFinder Digital is a company that specializes in the development of mobile ground terminal satellite communications solutions engineered to meet the unique and particular needs of each project, primarily for military and government agency programs,

The MAAC software is an upgrade that can be uploaded to the TracStar/TracLRI ACU, providing inter-communications between the OpenAMIP modem and the ACU. No new hardware is required. The MAAC software supports OpenAMIP communications with the iDirect modems enabling direct point and reference modes of satellite acquisition, thereby extending the useful life of the VSATs without the program needing to sacrifice functionality.

The MAAC software is operated via a simple web portal enabling configuration and control of the antenna. Profiles are retained for both OpenAMIP and legacy modem configurations.

At PathFinder Digital, we believe that post-sales support is just as critical as the initial sale. The MAAC software upgrade is one more example of PathFinder's commitment to supporting our customers and their activities.
