<b>REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala.</b> - A group of students from the Air War College receive a quick setup demonstration of the Deployable Satellite Communication Terminal (GATR) outside U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command headquarters here Sept. 11.
GATR is a large-aperture inflatable satellite antenna system that delivers portable, high-bandwidth communications for data, voice, and video in remote environments. The system offers unprecedented bandwidth for a small package solution by quickly and easily deploying large aperture satellite capability with minimal packaged volume. The combination of portability and performance makes the antenna ideal for remote, high-bandwidth satellite communications for use by first-in operators, contingency, and emergency personnel.
