AVX-620 Aviation Satellite Transceiver
Helicopters have a need for locating friendly and hostile forces on aircraft displays and in their command and control centers. The AVX-620 aviation tracking and messaging transceiver is designed for mobile tracking and messaging applications on fixed and rotary wing aircraft. It enables the display of positions for U.S. and coalition air and ground forces and C2 communication through its integration in the U.S. Army’s Blue Force Tracking system. Missions can be planned knowing exactly where forces are, and messages can be sent to individual assets in near real-time.

MTM-203 Embedded Satellite Transceiver
Comtech’s MTM-203 is a miniaturized mobile satellite transceiver that incorporates key features of our MT-2011 and is ideal for integration in handheld devices used for satellite-based communications and applications with size and weight restrictions. The MTM-203 combines compact design and unique functionality to provide integrators with a robust device that can easily be incorporated into other electronic devices. Its transceiver’s primary function is to allow users and enable applications to send and receive messages via satellite. By using the internal GPS receiver, the MTM[1]203 provides location information on each message and transmits location information automatically.
