NXTCOMM Chosen by L3Harris Applied sciences to Develop Ku-Band Antenna for Land-Cell Warfighter Connectivity | information
ATLANTA, June 25, 2021 / PRNewswire / – NXTCOMM Defense, the defense division of NXT Communications Corporation, announced today that L3Harris Technologies has selected NXTCOMM to develop an electronically steerable antenna (ESA) to support US Department of Defense fighter jets. The first deliveries of NXTCOMM’s ESAs are planned for the first quarter of 2022.
“NXTCOMM is excited to partner with L3Harris, a global innovator in aerospace and defense technology, to ensure the mobile connectivity of our nation’s war fighters,” said David Horton, CEO, NXTCOMM. “We look forward to improving L3Harris’ connectivity reliability and speed with smarter, faster, flat panel antenna technology that can instantly improve situational awareness among our soldiers on the ground.”
With no moving parts, NXTCOMM’s ESA works via GEO, LEO, MEO or HEO satellites in a form factor that fits into products today and at the same time is connected to LEO satellites, which will be complete constellations in the next few years.
“To meet the changing needs of our customers, L3Harris needed a state-of-the-art, small form factor ESA that was suitable for both Manpack and Flyaway terminals. NXTCOMM’s ESAs are an ideal complement to L3Harris’ industry leading VSAT technologies, enabling the multi-orbit terminals our customers need, “said Chris Aebli, President, Global Communications Systems, L3Harris. “L3Harris is excited to partner with NXTCOMM and looks forward to bringing these exciting skills into the hands of our war fighters.”
NXTCOMM continues to expand its in-house capabilities and infrastructure to support additional customer requirements and manufacturing through 2022.
